I bought a 250 gb external hard drive strictly for media and its near full
Nearly 8,000 songs (600 of which are by Dave Matthews), 120+ movies, entire collections of Family Guy, South Park, Chappelle's Show, Arrested Development, 24, etc
When my University's IT Department gets letters from the RIAA or MPAA, we actually block the user's MAC address until they delete the files and show us they've deleted it. Each subsequent violation results in further penalties.....
I would know, I work there and have to deal with file swappers all the time (doesn't stop me from doing it either....but I do use caution). Basically it comes down to being at college helps protect you, but eventually you can get in trouble...most colleges give you at least a warning or two though.
