To deter students from illegal file-sharing, Louisiana State University will levy a $50 fine on students who are identified by the Recording Industry Association of America as someone downloading illegally on an LSU network, the Daily Reveille reports.

The policy will be effective August 1, and the fine will show up on a student's personal online access account, much like a library or parking fee.
