It makes sense now that they go after some people so hard.  With that woman (forget her name) that had to pay over a million in fines...  Even if she doesn't pay or they don't go after the money, they put enough fear into people so that 25% of them pay these bogus fines.

And how much of this money do the artists actually see?  Any?

1: Jammie Thomas.

2: The record companies already screw over the artists, even before factoring in illegal downloads.

People are just plain dumb if they pay these guys simply because they recieved a letter requesting payment for alleged piracy.
