File Sharing

The use of programs such as KAZAA, Morpheus, Gnutella, LimeWire, Bear
Share, Emule, and iMesh that are used to download music, movies, and
games are not appropriate use of the UVU and UEN network.

These programs pose a significant security RISK TO YOU since you are
allowing anyone to access your hard drive and computer resources to use it
for possible illegal purposes.

File sharing also creates large amounts of network traffic causing the college

Additionally, almost all files that are downloaded are copyrighted materials
that are illegal to share and download. You can be prosecuted for doing
such.
