The US Naval Academy is investigating claims that nearly 100 of its midshipmen's computers are packed full of pirated music and movies.
According to the Annapolis Capital Gazette newspaper, the Academy raided its students' computers while they were in class.
Commander Bill Spann, spokesman for the Academy, confirmed to the newspaper that an investigation into material held on the computers was underway.
Punishment for illegal possession of copyrighted material ranges from a court-martial to loss of leave and other restrictions.
Each midshipman is given a computer upon entering the academy. During their four years at the school, they pay back the value of the computers through deductions from their monthly paychecks.
The raids follow two requests from the Recording Industry Association of America for the US Naval Academy to tackle pirates in its ranks.
