We require a "click-through" agreement to abide by University policies
and relevant laws, prior to obtaining access. If we were to receive a
legal complaint, e.g. for DMCA, we could do the necessary takedown by
doing MAC and/or IP address filtering.

There are two basic levels. Open access is limited to selected services,
including basic web, e-mail access (POP/IMAP + authenticated SMTP), and
some VPN services. Authenticated access is granted by logging in with
any valid userid, and the services are not limited.
