She also rejected a $5000 plea bargain. And they are still willing too.

$80,000 is ridiculous though. I frankly do not understand a max of 250,000 a song when no money was made.

80,000 per song?????????????? That's an even bigger robbery than gas prices! I know she downloaded illegally but that's way over the line.

she could have paid $0.99 for each song off of itunes but instead she downloads them illeagally and is paying $80,000 for each one. Dumb on her part, but also an absolutely ridiculous fine.

I won't deny I download illegally as well...I don't see the point in paying $.99 per song but then you see something like this and it scares me a bit...with that being said...I thought you couldn't get fined for downloading a song but only fined if you actually allow others to download that song from you??? I am guessing it is obviously wrong since that is what this chick did was download songs but I'm just wondering if anyone else heard this...

Fining someone $80,000 per song is like a $20,000 speeding ticket. I'd rather get punished for stealing a car than stealing a song! That is absolutely ridiculous!

All you have to do with limewire is turn off open sharing. You get caught for stuff you upload, not what you download.

This isn't about the money for the RIAA et al. This is about getting some good precedent. They know they won't see a dime.
