Re: Can she pay $222,000? And what if she can't?

You're the kind of person who tells Rosa Parks "Hope sitting in the front seat was worth it!" after she goes to jail.

Paid or not she broke the law all the same. I mean just think, that white person Rosa Parks didn't give her seat up for could have fallen on the way to the back of the bus causing long term injury and a loss of their way of life! I mean who cares how likely any of that is to happen, it's too hard to prove damages anyway, so $222,000 judgement in favor of the plaintiff against Rosa Parks too because, well... because!

Have you ever watched tv clips on Youtube?

Most of those are illegal.

Youtube removes any copyrighted material almost instantly when reported. Is there a legal difference between STREAMING, and DOWNLOADING? I would assume that streaming isnt categorized as copying, downloading/saving them certainly is.
This woman downloaded 1200 mp3's, and probably burned dozens of CDs

Even worse, she allowed others to ride the bus FOR FREE, thus depriving the good Montgomery County bus service of paying fares, which may or may not have added up to $222,000 worth of damages.

By streaming, you technically are downloading.
Also, she is being punished for 24 songs.
Let us also be clear on this: She is not being explicitly punished for downloading. She is being punished for implicitly "making available" 24 songs for an unidentifiable number of persons.

Streaming = downloading. How can it not be?

Youtube removes some material, not all.

Technically they are the same, legally they are not.

Technically isn't.
Streaming is a whole different segment than downloading.

The way you look at it, Streaming is a session, which you download, and upload data.

Youtube is a site that streams video to you, you don't literally download something to save and use it, it's temporary data that is used and erased after the user browse elsewhere.

However, streaming may be one thing, capturing that stream is another animal. What about all these apps that "allow" you to download videos of youtube? Or the apps that "rips" the music from the youtube video? We can also visit the apps that capture songs being streamed on the internet and stores them (with tags) on your PC. As long as Youtube plants "temp" files on your PC, "technically", your keeping part of said file on your PC till you clean up. Just sayin
