Illegal Download Warning

The UNSW Wireless network is presently provided free of charge to improve the student experience while at UNSW. Unfortunately a minority of irresponsible users choose to illegally download copyright material such as movies, videos, music and games. Such actions place the both the University and the individual responsible at risk of litigation for copyright infringement.

Penalties for illegal downloading include loss of access to the wireless network for up to one session; a formal disciplinary letter from the University and a fine of up to $1,000.
