I don't know what's worse, the ridiculous price or the fact that she used Kazaa.

I'm pretty sure there are people there are people who have done far worse.....not sure how the courts let them settle at that amount. As much as I dislike piracy, this is just taking it way too far. I feel sorry for the woman. Fuck knows how she'll come up with that.

Thats fucking insane.

We really need to move towards a new copyright law push, like free songs for noncommercial use.

Nice one record company, what better way to get people on your side than by causing utter resentment.

Bands can't afford to tour and make a living on small labels, and if you're on big labels, you can't control your music, and you get suits who decide that your songd are worth next to nothing, except when they need some lawsuit cash.

Fuck the industry, I want to see anyone of the users who tried to demonize piracy in the other thread come around here.
