iTunes Sharing at Colleges
Yale's Daily News reports on the increasing use of iTunes software at the Yale college campus. It appears to reflect a growing trend amongst colleges where iTunes' ability to share music playlists is turning out to be a very popular feature.
When iTunes 4.0 was originally introduced in April, it incorporated a much anticipated feature that allowed users to share music with other iTunes installations across the internet. The feature was quickly exploited drawing concerns of piracy. As a result iTunes 4.0.1 limited shares to Local Networks, which tend to be utilized in single households. College dorms, however, also bring together numerous users on a single local network allowing these students to share songs via iTunes.
