Student Banned From University Wi-Fi For Downloading Chicken Run

An 18-year-old student at Bristol University has had access to wi-fi blocked because she downloaded an illegal copy of Chicken Run.

Gianna Mulville-Zanetta used BitTorrent to download the 2000 animated classic but she was caught out by the university's IT department.

She was blocked from using the university's wi-fi for 20 days.

"I completely forgot I had downloaded it," Gianna, a first year social policy student, tells Newsbeat.

..and that is why it is a brilliant move to use a seedbox and download from it when using university resources. FTP meh. maybe HTTPS, or even HTTP after remotely downloading it from somewhere like Finland or France. (think British while attending college as a student)

She could have just bought the DVD for $1.98 from the bin at Walmart.
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
