We, too, received the letter and package. I've turned copies of
the materials over to legal counsel, sent him copies of the emails to
the CIO & Security lists that had been posted through the end of the day
yesterday, and pointed him, in particular, to Hopkins' legal counsel
identified by Steve Worona as coordinating higher ed responses to this.
Upon advice of our legal counsel, I also requested that Procurement not
pay any invoices they or other departments might receive from Acacia and
forward those invoices to me for holding until we decide whether or how
to respond to this.
Does anyone know of a college or university that HAS contracted and
paid the licensing fee?
