Stanford University bowed under pressure from Motion Picture Association of America and shut down their dorm's Gnutella server that students have been using to trade files over the P2P network.
Stanford University received a letter from MPAA's CEO Jack Valenti in December where he expressed his concern about the server and Stanford's attitude towards online piracy.

Stanford maintains its original attitude that Gnutella network itself is not illegal, but what users use it for might violate certain copyright holders' rights.
