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).
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.
