RIAA has won its lawsuit against Jammie Thomas, a single-mom of two kids. RIAA accused Ms. Thomas of sharing music on p2p networks. RIAA could only claim copyright ownership of 24 songs.
The jury awarded RIAA $222,000 in damages. That’s $9,250 per song. That sure sounds fair to me.
You could buy over 8,000 CDs with $222K.
I’m sure the RIAA is busy celebrating its victory over this single-mom. I hope bankrupting her was worth it.
