Copyright infringement and illegal downloading
Thinking of using BitTorrent to download a show, song or movie while connected to the SAIT campus network, including WiFi and VPN? Think twice. Downloading and sharing copyrighted material is illegal.
You should know
Content owners monitor the internet, particularly websites that use BitTorrent protocol. When downloading and sharing is noticed, owners will notify SAIT. Under copyright law, SAIT is required to pass on these copyright notices to individual network users. This is known as the “notice-and-notice” system, introduced in January 2015.
Although SAIT will not provide personal information to copyright holders unless legally compelled, students and employees are still personally responsible and accountable for their actions.
If you get one of these notices, don’t ignore it. It’s important to know that under the law, any notices of claimed copyright infringement must not request or demand payment or personal information.
SAIT policies and procedures
Illegal downloading activities on the SAIT network are a violation of AD.2.15.1 Acceptable Use of Computing Information and Technology Resources Procedure.
Students who receive a copyright infringement notice from a copyright owner will be contacted by SAIT’s Office of Community Conduct and are subject to the procedures under AC.3.4.1 Student Non-Academic Conduct Procedures. SAIT employees who receive notice are subject to HR.4.4.1 Corrective Action Procedure.
