“File-Sharing Mom” Won’t Work for RIAA

The Jammie Thomas file-sharing case was over a few months ago after lasting for almost 6 years. The case in question caused a lot of controversy and resulted in Jammie having to pay $222.000 in penalties to the Recording Industry Association of America for sharing two dozen songs via Kazaa. Today 36-year Jammie Thomas is known worldwide as a “file-sharing mom” and keeps making the headlines.


After more than 5 years of suing the woman, the entertainment industry has decided to propose her a discount in fine in exchange for some anti-piracy services Jammie could help it with. The woman answered shortly – no. At the time, her case was the first to get hugely mediated and one of the most notorious since the music industry began hunting down file-sharers. Afraid of the possibility that a soft penalty could affect both the anti-piracy campaign and RIAA’s image, the president administration spoke against any reduction of the enormous $222,000 fine.

In result, Thomas has been left owing the music industry plenty of money she has no way to pay. This fact might have made the RIAA consider an interesting option and offer the “file-sharing mom” an opportunity to work for them in order to reduce her fine. However, it didn’t take long for Jammie to refuse. Commenting upon the incident, the music industry argued that all their efforts were well-intended and aimed at reaching the less harmful solution. Representatives of the RIAA claimed that they have told Jammie Thomas they could consider a number of non-monetary settlement options, which was up to Jammie to offer. The anti-piracy body claimed this gesture was of a good will and insisted they were doing what they could to resolve the case in a way which would satisfy everyone. Though, it is doubtful that Thomas will be satisfied with any of the RIAA’s suggestions.

The industry observers point out that Jammie might file for bankruptcy and in fact the happy-end of this long-term case may be very hard to figure out. According to media reports, each party involved in the case actually ended up losing, except maybe the lawyers. Though, it’s quite hard to picture the Recording Industry Association of America as a loser.

crazymichael avatarI'd rather go to prison than pay $222,000 just for uploading 24 songs.Music and movies today are so rubbish sometimes i watch reviews on youtube before i watch movies so i'm not wasting 90 minutes of my life i can't get back and i don't remember last time i paid £16 for a cd.

jackalgym avatarI ridiculous and absurd the action the RIAA in this case, and any other involving piracy. by first not be a global consensus, according as it is an argument only media to create controversy into something new and not polemical in just because SYSTEMIC and evolution of the media is the future and the artists do not lose out, the balance sheets are clear after disclosures sites like kazaa and other artists little known or too nanda passed unintentionally!! rssss .. to have a disclosure FREE YOUR JOB SCOPE IN THE WORLD, .. it came money into the pockets of most artists who besides earning huge amounts of money to show etc ... who really was who went missing money SHOULD NEVER MAKE MONEY THAT WITH THE "GREAT PRODUCERS" EXPLORING THE ARTISTS AND ARE WITH MOST OF THE MONEY .. REVERTED THAT IS NOT IN ORDER TO DEVELOP NEW TALENTS AND YES YOU HAVE MORE MONEY! The artists earn, people gain the world and win as anybody in the USA has reputation of manifest positively WHY NOT CREATE A FUND FOR THAT WOMAN SHE DENY UNTIL DEATH, and to provide the BEST LAWYERS TO IT AND ATE A FUND FINANCIAL EVENT OCCURS ANY DAMAGE TO IT ... HAS SUFFERED MORE THAN JA .. /?? and just an idea ...

Portavo avatarIf she made a dvd it might be the only one any of us buy this year! I'd even fork out the £25 to take my gf to the cinema and see it.

DigitalLogin avatarThe RIAA probably immediately researched this woman's wealth and found nothing.
This is WHY they targeted her.
They've always known full well that they'd never see that $222K.
But the legal prices they paid were still lower than advertising.
Here, they get to be a news item targeted into instilling fear into the common (not rich) man and for less than any national campaign.

dsplayname avatarI didn't know anyone still used Kazaa. I bet that woman's computer was riddled with viruses.
