In Short

Students must take full responsibility for their actions, Chancellor Phil Clay said in an e-mail to MIT students Monday, even while celebrating traditions such as hacking. Clay’s e-mail also said that students should avoid academic dishonesty and illegal downloading. Dean for Student Life Larry Benedict, in an e-mail to students yesterday, repeated that sharing copyrighted material without authorization is illegal. RIAA’s latest round of “pre-litigation letters” targetted 30 MIT IP addresses.

A female student reported to the police that she was followed by a male in a vehicle on Friday. The suspect, captured Tuesday, was identified as Joseph D. Sullivan, a registered Level 3 Sex Offender.
