Boise State will block BitTorrent technology on university residence hall and public wireless networks beginning Thursday, January 10.

Boise State is taking this step to address continued violations of theĀ 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), along with liability issues, DMCA notifications, and device infections associated with illegal content downloads.

The Office of Information Technology recommends the use of legal streaming and download and streaming services.
