Jammie Thomas Gets A New Trial

Jammie Thomas won a retrial in the RIAA's file-sharing case brought against her in Minnesota.  The Judge ruled that his instructions in the original trial were wrong.  There he said files that could be shared (but weren't necessarily) was enough to show infringement.  Now he reverses that portion of the case, saying the RIAA must show actual transfer.  A legal victory of sorts, but added to his other change, that the RIAA can use downloads from their own investigators as proof, the result in this case will almost certainly be the same.
