If it's got a beat and you can dance to it, you can't go wrong -- unless that song was illegally downloaded. It's a problem the record industry is addressing by going after universities where students are doing just that.

The Recording Industry Association of America released its list of the 25 Worst Colleges and Universities for illegal downloads, and more than one area school made the list. Marshall University ranked 25th. The highest ranked school, with over one thousand complaints since this past fall is Ohio University. NewsChannel 3's Brooke Thacker has that story.
