First, thanks for the update in this case.

Deterent?  Proper?  Twenty four songs and 54,000?

I do not file share, but any person with an IQ over fifty knows this is outragous.

Theft is Theft, be it a candybar from the corner store or the retirement funds of thirty thousand employees. this is much mor ein line with the kinds of fines you see for other forms of theft and patent violation... it was the previous judgements which were obscene and outrageous.

I am in agreement with the theft part.  However, there are many problems in the way that the RIAA & MPAA are allowed to just steamroll the courts for massive amouts of IP addresses & then basically extort with a predisposition of "guilt notice" up front settlement or face stiffer penalties.

 

It is still outrageous.
