That looks awful small for an audio book. I can't believe you can fit an entire audio book into a 114k MP3. I'm 
wondering if they are just going by the name of the file without even verifying the contents of the file.

Have any universities received questionable infringement notices from
SafeNet on behalf of J.K. Rowling? We have had a few of these which seem to
be incorrect based on flows and user comments. Noteworthy, also, is the
filesize of the files. We have also received notices of the series in
uncommon languages. See example below:

Infringing Work: Harry Potter Audio (Book 1, 2, 3, or 4)
Filename: Harry Potter Stone.mp3
First Found: x Aug 2007 xx:xx:xx EDT (GMT -0400)
Last Found: x Aug 2007 xx:xx:xx EDT (GMT -0400)
Filesize: 114k
IP Address:
Network: LimeWire
Protocol: Gnutella
