Jury Finds Against Woman For Illegal Downloading

A jury has found against Jammie Thomas-Rasset at her second trial for illegal downloading of copyrighted music, and socked her with 1.9 million dollars in fines. A judge tossed the first verdict against her in 2007, saying that the jury instructions were faulty. Ms. Thomas-Rasset indicated that she plans to appeal. Had she paid for the 24 songs she was found liable for downloading illegally, she would have paid less than $25.
