Jammie Thomas Loses another Round in Court, Owes $1.5 Million

Paul Lilly

Rocky Balboa wrote the book on how to get your ass kicked just about every time you step into the ring, only for the most part he usually would find a way to win the bout. Jammie Thomas-Rasset? Not so much.

The convicted file sharer that we nearly forgot about got smacked around in court again and this time was hit with a $1.5 million verdict for damages related to copyright infringement. A(nother) jury of her peers found her guilty of illegally sharing 24 songs, for which she is ordered to pay $62,500 for each one.

"We are again thankful to the jury for its service in this matter and that they recognized the severity of the defendant's misconduct," the RIAA said in a statement. "Now with three jury decisions behind us along with a clear affirmation of Ms. Thomas-Rasset's willful liability, it is our hope that she finally accepts responsibility for her actions."

Sorry Apollo Creed, that isn't how sequels are made, and naturally Thomas-Rasset plans to appeal the ruling.

"We intend to raise our constitutional challenge again before Judge Davis," Kiwi Camara, an attorney for Thomas-Rasset, told CNet . "The fight continues."
