Objective

Compile a list of the 10 "worst offenders" of copyright sanity. In other words, what are the universities that pose the biggest threat to free culture on their campuses?

Criteria

  1. Student copyright policy
    • What rights do students have to their work?
    • Moreover, are they allowed to freely license it?
  2. p2p filesharing policy
    • How willing is the university to play ball with RIAA's extortionist tactics?
    • Do they readily give up student information, or ban the student from the network? 3 strikes? 1 strike?
    • Do they offer services to students who are sued?
    • What is the party line about the copious amounts of file sharing that is obviously going on on their campuses? For example, is there an internal filesharing service meant to restrict filesharing to the campus network in hopes of reducing over the internet piracy traffic?
  3. Privacy / Free Speech stuff
    • Is running Tor legal?
    • Can you protest easily? Do you have stupid "free speech zones" and "non-free speech zones"?
  4. Open Access
    • How receptive are the librarians / academics to open access publishing? This is a hard thing to quantify, but perhaps you guys have some better ideas.
  5. Network freedom
    • How possible is it for students to run their own servers on their computers attached to the institutional net?
    • Is the network designed to block the hosting of servers?
    • Is there policy against it?
    • Do the networks block some IP addresses or some ports from inbound or outbound access? (e.g., Johns Hopkins blocks any access to the IP address of some major BitTorrent trackers.)
    • Does any traffic throttling happen, e.g. slowing any and all BitTorrent traffic?
    • Is network bridging or the installation of wireless access points possible and/or authorized?
  6. Courseware
    • Blackboard?
    • Sakai?
    • Moodle?
    • How well is ODF supported? For instance, are course documents and/or administrative forms offered in ODF?
