The U.S. Supreme Court denied a request by Attorneys for a Massachusetts man accused of illegally downloading songs.

He now faces a fine of nearly $700,000. (USD).

Hmmm.

A man was caught music downloading,

Sony said he was freeloading.

He downloaded songs,

They said it was wrong,

And his fine had no sugar coating.

 

This isn’t the first time someone has been fined for illegal file downloads of copyrighted material.

A federal jury in Minneapolis ruled that a woman has to pay $1.92 million or $80,000 on each of 24 songs, after concluding she willfully violated the copyrights on those tunes.

  1. Yeah. I wonder how they choose who will be their culprit.

  2. John the Aussie said:

    I guess its an odds game who gets caught.

  3. They just want to frighten people. But a lot of folks still do it.

  4. I wonder how $80,000 per song is justified… And each for only 24 songs. While hundreds if not thousands of people have thousands of songs.
