Nice to see the punishment is proportional to the crime. She would have been better off stealing 24 cd's from a store.
Makes me wonder how the record companies managed to only be responsible for a ten dollar refund on all of my 'price-fixed' cds if I could prove I bought any of them within the time frame of the price-fixing.
Since the police didn't download the files, then I'm guessing the RIAA is also guilty of stealing the music. I'm not allowed to break into someone's home to prove they stole something, even if it's sitting in front of their window, so how is the RIAA any different?
And yes... it's too early to form a coherent post and I have a 9 hour meeting coming up.
