I see so many things wrong with this plan, I don't know where to begin. For one thing, it assumes everyone is a pirate. Plus, the only way to insure money collected will be dispersed to proper artists would be to monitor the network to see what songs are being traded the most; how would they do that? Plus I don't like the idea of an industry making tons of money for essentially doing nothing.

The cheapest thing for the Universities to do would be to ignore this ludicrous idea and tell the music industry to solve it's own problems, however, it seems they have some very powerful allies in congress.
The music INDUSTRY (aka Major Labels) should just go away. Music will live on. Good artists will make money. Good (and bad) music will continue to be created and people will continue to be entertained.

This makes me want to start my own record label,
make some terrible mp3s of me singing nonsensical drivel,
then send a bill to the university when I get people to download them.
