Congratulations to the RIAA

Added on by Tom Webster.


In an historic verdict, the Recording Industry Association of America has triumphantly defeated its customers by taking down one of its most sinister foes, the diabolical Jammie Thomas-Rasset, 32, of Brainerd, Minnesota. A jury ruled that Ms. Thomas-Rasset should pay about $80,000 for each of the 24 songs she posted on a file-sharing service, for a total of $1.92 million. Surely, the only way to score a more convincing victory over its customers would be for the RIAA to seek the death penalty.
