Woman found guilty in Media Law Case of Week

The federal jury ruled today in the case I featured Monday in the Media Law Case of the Week.

Unfortunately for the Minnesota woman accused of illegally sharing copyrighted music, the outcome was worse than the first trial. Instead of owing the record industry $220,000, she now owes $1.92 million.  Here’s what Jammie Thomas-Rasset told the Associated Press about the verdict:

“There’s no way they’re ever going to get that. I’m a mom, limited means, so I’m not going to worry about it now.”
