With the increased number of computers available around the campus and the ease of disk copy, piracy of computer programs becomes an increasing problem. The owner of a computer program is responsible for the restrictions of the license agreement and should know the details of the agreement for his/her software. Remember, software piracy is theft. Generally, it is not permissible to borrow software from someone else. Read the license carefully to make sure that it is acceptable to install the software on more than one computer. Otherwise, this borrowing is theft. It is equally illegal to share copyrighted music, texts, videos, films, or any other media.
LeTourneau University maintains a series of public and private computer networks. Unauthorized accesses and/or attempts at unauthorized access (hacking) into any university network or system or into any computer system not owned by the student are strictly prohibited. Hacking to gain illegal entry to any University network or the distribution of University data (gained legally or illegally) without written permission may result in suspension or dismissal from the University, civil or criminal prosecution, and other legal penalties. Students are additionally responsible for following all guidelines published on the LetNet policies page accessible by visiting http://www.letu.edu/opencms/opencms/administrative/infotech/resources/policies/index.html. Individuals found to be in violation of the above policy may be subject to immediate disconnection from the network or revocation of computing privileges, pending the appeal process.
