RIAA vs. Jammie Thomas: $9,250-per-song damages
From slashdot.org: “As Jammie Thomas appeals the $222,000 copyright infringement verdict against her, the Department of Justice has weighed in on a central facet of her appeal: whether the $9,250-per-song damages were unconstitutionally excessive and violated the Due Process Clause of the Constitution. The DoJ says that there’s nothing wrong with the figure the jury arrived at”.
Again: $9,250-per-song damages are NOT unconstitutionally excessive and DO NOT violated the Due Process Clause of the Constitution. That’s a very hefty “damage” reimbursement! And how much of this amount goes exactly in the “damaged” artists’ pockets?
