DOJ Says Damages In Thomas Case Acceptable

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a brief in the Jammie Thomas case urging that the amount of damages assessed is constitutional ($9,250 per song, totaling $222,000) and does not violate the Due Process clause even though the labels make around, oh, 70 cents per song if that.  The DOJ also suggests that the Court need not consider the argument as it was waived.

Copies of the document are available through links at the Recording Industry vs the People blog, and commentary via Ars Technica.
