If she had bought all those songs, the total amount she would have spent would never approach the punishment. At this point the courts should have said 'Look, at best she owes for the music, plus a fine. This isn't a case of insurance fraud by a company against the little guy, this is just someone downloading music, albeit illegally, which should be curtailed. That doesn't mean she should be paying court costs on top of that. Because all she'll do is declare bankruptcy and then you won't see the payment anyway.'
Dumb all around. Count on a court of law to levy justice out of proportion to the crime. You think she'd killed someone.
