WTF?

Man we need to change the law. Seven songs uploaded and you can get a penalty of up to $1 million?

Seriously even if they win he can just declare bankruptcy and they get nothing.

And then he could kiss buying a house or car out the window unless he plans on paying cash for them. Not to mention things like your employer, utilities, cell phones, credit cards, etc. all do a credit check on you too.

You're really not paying attention.

Anonymous pretends that by declaring bankruptcy everything is OK because hey the RIAA won't get their money! But he ignores the fact that declaring bankruptcy will also ruin the guy's life for the next decade.

No he better win the fucking trial. It's a bullshit trial anyways.

I do think it would be hilarious if the judge did find him guilty and as punished ordered him to buy the seven songs off of iTunes. That would be hilarious since the punishment would essentially be a slap on the wrist and the RIAA would have spent all that money on a trial only to see the guy wind up spending a total of $6.93 for the 'crime'.

Brilliant! Now that would be poetic justice. Especially if it became precedent for future proceedings!

that would be the proper sentence, considering if the RIAA considers P2P as theft. guess what many judges have ordered shoplifters to do? buy the product they stole.

I don't think you can get rid of court ordered restitution under most bankruptcy laws, can you?

It might differ in various states, but I dont think you can file things like court ordered restitution on a bankruptcy. Im not 100% on this though.
