  • 1. Western Kentucky University 1906 College Heights Blvd. Bowling Green, KY 42101 (270) 745-0111 News Release For Immediate Release Feb. 28, 2014 For more information, contact: Katie Jaggers Director of Media Relations 502-424-7894 katherine.jaggers062@topper.wku.edu WKU IT Department Relaunches Anti-Piracy Efforts The WKU IT Department announced today that they are relaunching their efforts to combat the illegal downloading and sharing of music files today. The campaign will target illegal student behavior on the campus network. The public relations campaign will focus on reminding students that their actions are not a victimless crime, piracy is becoming less popular and therefore easier to stop, and that there are other ways to listen to music freely. “We want students to know the seriousness of their actions and to learn that there are many other options available for music sharing that are not illegal. We hop to create a safer, more informed campus,” Vice President for Information Technology Robert Owen said. The IT Department has previously worked to discourage illegal activity by monitoring student behavior and issuing punishments for activity. While this method stopped some students from downloading and sharing, the Department is still seeking to lower the number of students who participate in this illegal behavior. Western Kentucky University is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Western is dedicated to being a leading American university with international reach. The IT Department works to support Western students in their academic pursuits by providing technical support and assistance.
