It's not just German prosecutors anymore that get buried in file sharing lawsuits. Universities are increasingly feeling burdened by the music industry's legal campaign against file sharing as well, according to an article from the Chronicle of Higher Education. The Chronicle is reporting that Virginia Tech now has two full employees working full time to respond to RIAA requests.

More and more colleges are fed up with the flood of lawsuits, take down notices and pre-litigation requests. Some have considered erasing their log files more often so they can't cooperate with the RIAA, while others have openly fought the music industry's subpoenas in court. The article is a few days old, but definitely worth a read.
