University of Nebraska-Lincoln has implemented a three-strike rule to deal with students suspected of illegally downloading music using the university’s internet service provider, reports the Associated Press. The measure is part of UNL’s cooperation with the Recording Industry Association of America. That organization has in recent years taken legal action against — and reaped hefty settlements from — UNL students for illegal downloading. Under the three-strike rule, students are issued an eMail warning for a first offense. A student’s network use is temporarily suspended for a second offense. Third-time offenders are sent to Student Legal Services, pending legal action.
