I just hope there isn't a campus shooting or something like that. How would campus personnel be able to broadcast emergency messages to your VoIP phone in your dorm room? There's a lawsuit waiting to happen. Or what if some other major emergency happens on campus, like you know, you've got the major munchies or you want to order a pizza? Now that's really a lawsuit waiting to happen! Don't believe lawsuits can happen over not being able to order pizza using VoIP? Just go take a gander at Vonage IPO Lawsuit and my Lawsuit over my Cold Pizza.
