We're always eager to enjoy our favorite music, movies, videos, and TV shows while we hang out in our rooms or walk around campus. And it's easy to get access to our favorite entertainment from the Internet; but some ways of doing this aren't legal, putting you at risk for being sued by the entertainment industry and being sanctioned for a violation of the Student Conduct Code. File sharing also carries risks to your computer through viruses and malware often contained within the material you download.
The world at your fingertips
There are many ways to find legal sources of digital entertainment, including resources we've compiled for this site, Bird Trax from Illinois State University, and the list maintained by EDUCAUSE. With so many legal sources, there's no reason not to "get legal"!
UCLA at your fingertips
There are also thousands of easily accessible campus videos available through UCLA on iTunesU and UCLA on YouTube for you to enjoy. We've included two short video primers (below) on illegal file sharing created by a UCLA student. They're informative and entertaining. Check 'em out!
