RIAA breaks the law finding people to sue and misuses the law. They get a free pass becuase they are a large organization with lots of money and politically powerful backers.

I'd just turn around and use their own tactic against them. It's illegal to watch data unless there is a warrant for a reason. Just like you searching my locked glovebox. My computer is passworded so if your watching me, i can send you to jail.

And your point is? I don't recall saying anything regarding the lawfulness of the actions of the RIAA. If you steal you should be punished; I make no mention of the RIAA's actions in this thread, but thanks anyway.

...You don't have to have a lawyer to show up in court. She didn't show up which is equivalent to a guilty plea, meaning she dropped the ball. The only reason not to show up would be a medical procedure, but you can get a delay for things like that. Amazing how that works!

The financial and medical conditions do not excuse her from the fact that she broke the law. She illegally downloaded music from the internet, and in doing so infringed on multiple intellectual property copyrights.

Now she has been caught, and is complaining because she is being punished for her unlawful actions? That is just pathetic. Ever hear the old saying, "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime". Same principle applies here. If she can't afford to pay the charges she has been hit up with, she shouldn't have stolen music from the internet.

This whole single mother, $8.25 an hour, hospital bound, and on a transplant waiting list crap is just a facade to make people feel sorry for her. In reality, she is a hardened criminal and knew full well of the laws being broken in the act of downloading illegal music and knew full well the consequences of doing so.

They should be forced to pay the fines in their entirety, and be permanently banned from holding an internet account ever again, to prevent any subsequent infringing activity. If the RIAA really wants to set a precedent here, and really make people stop downloading songs illegally, they should have pushed for jail time. Sure, fines are bad, but actual jail time would be a much greater deterrent to intellectual property copyright infringement.

This lawsuit is a step in the right direction, and hopefully, is a sign of things to come.

Aha! I stopped believing you after the first paragraph. Though, if she were in jail then her medical bills would be paid by the government...

I would really want to see someone who hasn't ever pirated music, movie, game or program.

RIAA is going bit far with this.

I like in Ross Township in Pittsburgh, and it's kind of spooky to think RIAA is going Big Brother on everyone.

Thank God for encrypted SSL usenet service.

How is it legal for the RIAA to do this? Who passed the bill making it right to charge $x,000 per song and why have we put up with this as a federal constitutional republic.

This is not the United States I am so proud to be a citizen of. Laws are supposed to "underpin civil obedience, politics, economics and society". Suing people for tens of thousands of dollars does nothing but generate income that the RIAA can use to further their bull**** accusations of innocent people and give them inappropriate penalties for wanting to listen to a series of sound waves.

Is there anything that can be done on a citizen level to curb this madness?

You can't be serious?

A teenager's life ruined because a major media conglomerate didn't get the $10 for a few mp3's? Whilst murderers and dope fiends are set free because of over crowding in everything from county jails to maximum security prisons across the country; whilst the world stands on the brink of financial collapse -not from piracy but from the poorest economic practices since Michael Jackson bought a ****ing amusement park - and you think a teenager sharing ten songs is just cause for such a baseless attack? You think the punishment fits the crime here?

My only wish is that one day you have children -naive and daring as children will be -and that they are taken away from you for something equally asinine. Hope that one day, the people you love should lose their credibility and freedom for a simple mistake -theft that in a convenience store or a Wal-Mart wouldn't even get you into the back of a police car much less tried in court.

I'm still proud to live here, ruined as it may be -it's the neglect of people that disappoints me. It is through the the inaction of good people that this world has come into being -that these lawsuits are considered just despite their lack of reason or equality.
