Colleges Required to be Copyright Cops

A new education bill would require colleges to police copyright infringement or lose federal funding. It also would require them to offer "alternatives" to P2P.
First, the "alternatives" requirement sounds to me like Congress is essentially requiring colleges to provide students with a luxury item (legit downloaded music) or lose their funding, which is ridiculous.
Secondly, is there any other civil offense that colleges are required to police or lose federal funding? I don't think so.
