In a world full of greed, it's hard to see the facts behind the myths that many succumb to. There are so many bogus claims from businesses seeking excuses for a recession based revenue loss, that it has become a daily trend to "blame others" for your company's losses. That trend doesn't seem to slow now, as The Business Software Alliance (BSA), which represents nearly two-thirds of all software makers in the fight against copyright infringement cases, has released a report claiming that over one billion dollars in software was shared just in the first half of 2009. Woman Sentenced To Pay 1.7 Million Over 24 Songs Recently, a woman named Jammie Thomas-Rasset was taken to a federal trial, over her "copywright" infringement case. In a repeat of the verdict from her first federal trial, Thomas-Rasset was found liable for willfully infringing all 24 copyrights controlled by the four major record labels at issue in the case. The jury awarded the labels damages totaling a whopping $1.92 million. Outraged, and possibly shocked, she had no choice but to accept this.
Her attorney, Kiwi Camara, spoke shortly after the trial. When asked about the $80,000 per song damage award, he then proceeded to state that he was "angry about it" and further went on to state he had been convinced that any liability finding would have been for the minimum amount of $750 per song.
