Warner Music, EMI, Vivendi Universal and Sony BMG’s RIAA have been aggressively pursuing piracy cases at Columbia University, Duke University, Dartmouth College, University of Pennsylvania, Yale, Princeton, and Brown University.

It seems to be making Harvard University an exception to prosecution, and that might have something to do with the fact that Charles Nesson, William F.
