$675,000 Judgment For Illegally Distributing 30 Songs?

Jury orders student to pay $675,000 for illegally downloading music

This jury award is preposterous.

$22,500 per song.

These are mere bits on a computer hard drive yet this is seen akin to a "capital offense".

This does not represent the proportionality of the crime. Instead it shows the power of the Music and Entertainment industry in their ability to twist the arms of our legislators.
