Woman Hit With $1.92 Million Fine in RIAA Case

The case went up for re-trial before a new jury, who found her guilty and surprisingly handed out even harsher fines than in the first trial. Thomas-Rasset was ordered to pay $80,000 per infringement mounting up to a total of $1.92 million in fines.

Thomas-Rasset, like many others, couldn’t believe her ears when the court read out the verdict, and later said that it was “kind of ridiculous”.

Unlike most people, Thomas-Rasset never opted to settle with the RIAA, determining that she had the law on her side. Unfortunately for her the jury in this landmark case ruled she did not.

“We appreciate the jury’s service and that they take this issue as seriously as we do,” said Cara Duckworth, an RIAA spokeswoman. “We are pleased that the jury agreed with the evidence and found the defendant liable. Since day 1, we have been willing to settle the case and remain willing to do so.”

Yeah, the jury are either insane, dumb, or bribed, i'm sure we will find out which in the not too distant future.  Following on very soon after will be a further appeal, ending in the whole thing being booted out of court. You can't realistically fine a woman an amount of money thats more than she will earn in her life time,  if it does stick, she willl probably end up paying $5 a month, a complete farce.

They just sue people with ridiculous amounts of money as a scare tactic. I'm sure they're aware they'll never win what they try to sue for.
- Have a nice explosive day.
