[P2PNet] RIAA to LimeWire: You owe us $1.5 Trillion

That was because judge Kimba Wood had ruled LimeWire infringes copyright.

Now it looks as though one Kelly M. Klaus (right) of Munger, Tolles & Olson, yet another RIAA posse, wants Wood to order LimeWire owner Mark Gorton to pay $1,500,000,000,000 for 200,000,000 alleged downloads, at $750 per.

To whom? To Arista Records, Atlantic Recording, BMG Music, Capitol records, Electra Entertaiment, Interscope Records, Motown Recording, Priority Records, LaFace Records, Sony BMG (?), UMG Recordings and Warner Bros Records.

That’s one point five trillion dollars.

Wow. That's all I can say.

There are only $2 billion to $2.5 billion worth of pennies in circulation, according to my google search-fu.

Sorry what... $750 dollars per thing! All you can download on limewire are single things, and most of those will be single music tracks worth 99p on itunes! And onto a more pressing point - not even Bill Gates has a trillion dollars!

Only in America
best part is they think they are actually owed that? sorry but even if 25% of people who pirated stuff would have bought it other wise...there is no way that 1.5 trillion would ever have been owed...thats like 50 times what the industry is worth

Yet more proof that the RIAA has lost it and is very full of themselves.
