The University of Minnesota-Duluth just learned an unsettling lesson about the internet: you can't control how people are going to use your content.
The U of M thought it would be cute to set up a live-streaming web cam in the library. What could possibly go wrong?
Then a local gay bathhouse began streaming images of the co-eds under the heading: "Stalking Local Wildlife at the UMD Library"
Cue lawsuits from outraged parents in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...
According to the Duluth News Tribune, the library shut down the web cam after learning it was appearing on the website of the Duluth Family Sauna. Don't let the name fool you, this place is a sex club that features communal showers and free condoms.
The bath house is also running a special in the hopes of enticing some of the U of M's young "STUDents" to come "unwind with your buddies."
So, yeah, probably not something the U of M wants its library to be associated with.
