Notice about copyright infringement from Professor Kanchana Kanchanasut, AIT VP-Research and intERLab Director

Dear AIT Internet Users,

During the past weeks, we have received a number of complaints for copyright infringement by Institute students and employees on AIT network using their accounts to offer proprietary movies for download.

Such violations bring threat of legal action and disrepute to the Institute.  It is also clearly stated in the AIT Acceptable Use Policy http://www.ait.ac.th/it_committee/aup that such misbehavior will not be tolerated.

Starting from 12 May 2015, any such complaint received will lead to immediate account suspension, without any warning.

It appears that most of the complaints resolve around using BitTorrent.  If you installed BitTorrent but are not using it anymore, remove it. If you may be using it in the future, at least disable it so it will not run anytime you turn your machine on: this will save resources, and this will prevent BitTorrent from sharing material without your knowledge. You should not have pirated material on your machine, but in case you have, don't keep it in a directory shared by BitTorrent.

For your immediate compliance and guidance.
