Appeals court approves $675,000 fine for student who illegally downloaded 30 songs
[link to www.digitaltrends.com]

In 2009, the former Boston University Ph.D student was ordered by a jury to pay damages amounting to $675,000, to be split between four major record labels, for illegally downloading and sharing 30 songs online as the result of a then-two year trial between Tenenbaum and the record labels. Now, after various attempts to explain that damages of $22,500 per song is a little extreme – not to mention, potentially out of his ability to pay – he has seemingly been ordered, once and for all, to pay up.

But he doesn't have the money so its pointless....
Its just a stunt because he didn't receive money for the songs it could never be criminal illegal copyright infringement.
And this is just these scammers attempt to try to make copying for personal use a crime.

I wonder has anyone ever just said F it and went to court with this one?

Sounds daft I know but there are so many points to this one that implicates the likes of Disney and quite a few others that I can't remember now. But they all used to share music files on their sites.
