Illegal file sharing

If you have recently engaged in illegal peer-to-peer file sharing your computer may have been blocked on our network.

DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) complaints occur when WWU's internet service provider is notified that a computer on our campus has been caught illegally downloading and/or sharing copyrighted content. They, in turn, notify WWU, requesting that we take action to correct the situation. 

In order to get the port re-enabled please review WWU's Copyright Infringement Policies.

It's cheaper to stay legal

If you illegally download copyrighted material, not only are you subject to disciplinary action from WWU, you may also face criminal and civil penalties. Paying to get legal copies of the music and videos you like is a cheaper way to go!

Services like NetflixHulu, and Pandora are cost-effective ways to consume digital media while remaining within the confines of the law.
