Unbelievable as it sounds, a federal jury in Minnesota ordered a woman to pay $1.92 million for violating copyrights on 24
songs she illegally shared. Thatâ??s $80,000 per song.
Jammie Thomas-Rasset today
asked a judge to knock the penalty down to a total of $18,000 or to offer her a new trial.
She could have avoided the ordeal by paying about $24 to do download the songs legally.
Still, whatâ??s a reasonable fine?
