Torrent Freak released a list of BitTorrent usage at universities, and NYU came in at second place. Despite most universities’ anti-piracy policies, college students still participate in illicit file-sharing on their school networks. NYU totaled at about 986 hits behind Rutgers, in first place, with 1809 hits. In 2010, the U.S. Government started requiring universities to stop the illegal sharing which threatened some schools federal funding. Though BitTorrent is the most heavily monitored file-sharing platform, illegal sharing still persists.
