Reacting to DMCA Cease and Desist Notices

While we believe the BGSU response will mitigate the violations of DMCA, it is still possible that members of the BGSU community will ignore or circumvent the measures we have undertaken. When this happens representatives of copyrighted content (RIAA, MPAA, BSA, etc) may detect the illegal downloading or sharing of copyrighted content on the BGSU network.

As a result, they will send the university a letter of the alleged infringement.   In order to comply, ITS will forward the complaint to Student Affairs (if the alleged infringer is an employee, ITS will forward the appropriate disciplinary authority for investigation), who will in turn notify the student of the complaint.
