Intermediary Appointed for Copyright Infringer by the Judge

American District Judge Michael Davis has already been kind enough to lower the original amount of damages for Jammie Thomas’s copyright infringement case from $1,920,000 to $54,000. Moreover, the RIAA has even proposed her a twice less settlement of $25,000, but Thomas still declines she has to pay any money to the entertainment industry.

That’s a shame for the RIAA that Jammie Thomas’s case is still continuing. It’s been years already now that the industry has tried to make an example out of Thomas for refusing to get a settlement offer of several thousand dollars, instead spending many millions on the trial which currently demands the accused to pay only $54,000 damages.

After several years of legal failures the RIAA finally was lucky to convince a judge a year ago that Jammie was guilty of copyright violation, and demanded the fine at $80 thousand for each of 24 track she was said to illicitly make available, thus getting a total of $1,920,000.

However, the presiding judge later decreased the settlement to $2,250 for each track, thus ruling her to pay a total of $54,000. He was a kind of just to say that statutory damages should still correlate to actual ones. But Jammie still disagree to pay the decreased amount – actually, she doesn’t want to pay anything at all.

Her attorney confirmed that she won’t accept any offer demanding her to pay to or on behalf of the music industry. That was made after news surfaced that the RIAA offered a much lower settlement of $25,000, noting that all the proceeds will go to a charity that benefits musicians, in an attempt to end this case once and for all.

It seems that both sides are still at loggerheads for the sum of money Thomas has to pay. That’s why Judge Davis made a decision to appoint a special master who will help the negotiations get off the ground. The order says the court believes that the matter of the action is of a very complicated nature and thus finds it appropriate to appoint a special intermediary for settlement purposes.

The RIAA is likely to see another nightmare after this order, as the court particularly noted that the intermediary has to be paid by the industry at a rate of $400 per hour. This means that the RIAA, except for expensive attorney fees, now also has to pay one more person to figure out how much Jammie can reasonably pay.

The third trial will take place on October 4th.

menahunie avatarScuba your wrong and Chapter 7 can be filed since the judgment isn't from the government BUT the RIAA.
If she decides to pay anything it shouldn't be more than what iTUNES charges around one dollar a song..
As Sam as stated MILLIONS of dollars spent and who benefited? THE PUKE LAWYERS..
