RIAA Wins $1.92 Million Verdict In Music File-Sharing Case

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) could be $1.92 million richer after a federal jury Thursday ruled a Minnesota mother of four who downloaded 24 songs violated music copyrights.

The massive verdict in the nation's only filing-sharing case to go to trial, found Jammie Thomas-Rasset, 32, "committed willful violation" of the copyrights. The verdict was to the tune of $80,000 for each of the 24 songs Thomas-Rasset downloaded from the Kazaa file-sharing network. Among the downloaded songs were tunes by popular acts like Gloria Estefan, Sheryl Crow and Green Day.

I was completely f'ed up thanks to an IV sedative the oral surgeon administered before pulling my wisdom teeth. The teeth still haven't been pulled. (Long story.) I guess Riley the Cat decided to use me as a bed, only to protest angrily later when someone took a candid photograph of him.

The New York Times should probably look into why their user reviews are coming up on Google News

I want to hang out with the person who thought that Drag Me to Hell had too much in common with his or her life.
