Purdue University Will Gladly Forward RIAA Letters To Students

Unlike the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Purdue University will be happy to forward the RIAA’s threatening letters to its students. From The Journal & Courier:

If an Internet user notified decides not to pay the settlement, the music association will ask the university for its computer logs so it can pursue legal action. University spokeswoman Jeanne Norberg said the university would comply with the requests.

Norberg added that the university could be asked to identify potentially thousands of Internet users, causing a financial burden at Purdue.

The language of this article suggests that not only will Purdue forward the letters, but they will furnish the RIAA with names of students upon request. The university’s position on identifying students has not been confirmed. —MEGHANN MARCO
