Napster deal

So apparently UW will be paying $24k and will be getting 3,000 licenses for students in the residence halls. More details here. I guess the good thing is that they're not using any state, tuition, or tax related money...? quote:

"These are not state appropriated funds," said Arkans. "[The money is] not from the student technology fee, not tax funding and not tuition."

Instead the money in the fund comes from royalties generated by software and technology that is developed by the University and licensed to manufacturers and users.
