On the campaign trail, Barack Obama encourages 15,000 students in the audience at Indiana University's Assembly Hall to vote
before they head home for the summer. The state's primary is scheduled for tomorrow.
Courting the student vote

Obama, Clinton ask
Indiana students to
make time to vote

"I love you, Barack!" the fan
"If you really love me, you'll vote
early for me," the Democratic pres-

idential candidate responded.
Obama's request that people
vote early - an option extended to
all Indiana voters - was an effort
to increase voter turnout among
college students, a group that polls
show has overwhelmingly support-
ed the Illinois senator. But with
many Indiana colleges in their last
week of school, it's unclear to what
extent that constituency will turn
With the final days of the school
year upon them, most Indiana col-
lege students seem preoccupied,
more concerned with final exams
and leaving campus thanthe state's
high-profile primary tomorrow.
As a result, Obama and his oppo-
nent, Sen. Hillary Clinton, have
been campaigning on campuses
throughout. the state, reminding
students that they can vote early
if they leave the state before the
actual election.

With polls showing the candi-
dates deadlocked in the Hoosier
State and Obama holding a slight
edge in delegates for the Democrat-
ic nomination, the campaigns have
to get the message out to students
in both Indiana and North Caro-
lina, which also votes tomorrow.
Obama even spent the first 10
minutes of his talk here with Indi-
ana University students explaining
how one could vote early - includ-
ing the exact locations and hours of
operation for three nearby polling
places - adding that he understood
many students would be heading
home for the summer.
"I need you guys to go ahead and
early vote," Obama told the crowd
of about 15,000 students. "If you
can't do thatcand you're on the verge
of going home, then I really need
you to stick around until Tuesday.
I need your vote."

Students face
copyright lawsuits
Managing News Editor
While the rest of campus
worried about final exams and
papers, 15 University students
found out they might have to
hand over a few thousand dol-
lars for music they shared over
the Internet.
The students received let-
ters from the University that
the Recording Industry Asso-
ciation of America believed
they had engaged in file-shar-
ing over the University's net-
work. The notices sent were
only a few of hundreds of
copyright infringement noti-
fications sent by the industry
group to universities over the
past two weeks.
Jack Bernard, the Universi-
ty's assistant general counsel
who handles legal issues sur-
rounding file-sharing, said in
the last two weeks the Uni-
versity received more than 65
notices from the RIAA.
While most were "take down
notices,"which require the Uni-
versity to tell targeted network
users to stop engaging in copy-
right infringement, 15 were
"preservation notices," which
require the University to main-
tain the logs that could identify
potential copyright infringers.
Preservation notices can lead to
lawsuits or costly settlements
for students.
