A man who was one time associated with UR was observed attempting to download a movie onto his computer in the ITS Center in Rush Rhees Library, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

The movie was a copyrighted motion picture, and therefore, the download was illegal.

He departed from the library before officials could arrive, but he was found and positively identified by library staff.

The man was found to be an ex-graduate student, but his affiliation with the University ended years ago.

Security gave the man an interim ban from the area and he was advised not to return to ITS premises.
