I think that she should pay something, but the amount is still way too high. Like a dollar a download and a dollar for each one she gave away times three.

She should have been fined $2.40, i.e. 10 cents for each song......that is all they about worth anyway.

4.80 would have been appropriate -----double the regular price ----$54,000 is utter foolishness.

I don't understand why some of the bands whose music was downloaded haven't vocally supported her. I know that this Native American single mother of four has supposedly robbed them but somehow I think Green Day and Aerosmith will be okay. I love the "outlaw" ethos of rock and roll music until someone listens to one of their songs for free. It seems to me that being Native American gives her enough karma points in her DNA to do whatever the hell she wants to white people.

Actually, a lot of artists support the RIAA on this. Time for everyone, who thinks that this is wrong, to get over it. Copyright laws will continue to be cantankerously supported.

Is the RIAA really a legal entity?

Yes.

Grandmas allegedly violating copyright are pitted against big money, rogue, civilian, extrajudicial organizations like the RIAA which will snoop into your computer if they want to, and without a license.

I did not mean that to be a factual statement.

54k is still absurd

Agreed, 54k is still ridiculous. I'm all for supporting artists, but this woman didn't hurt anyone. Give her a warning and that's that.

Are bands like the RIAA's Metallica responsible for draconian measures and disproportionate penalties?
10:15 PM on 01/22/2010
I doubt that a warning is going to be viewed by copyright holders as appropriate, or acceptable.

54k for 24 songs is still horrible. It's almost like a "good cop, bad cop" joke played on the woman.

Now the RIAA can directly send a check to their local politicritter and push for tougher laws.
