    Default Record companies pay $45 million for pirating music

    Pot meet kettle. Maybe what the ordinary citizen is asked to pay will be re-evaluated given what the the labels paid for 100's of thousands of infringements. Or not.

    $45M / 300K = $150 per song. I wonder if people can ever use the defense, "I hoped to pay [them] at some point."

    I don't share my music though. I just find their conduct hypocritical.

    That is what I was thinking for Thomas-Rasset and Tenenbuam. Sauce that is good on goose is equally good on gander.

    I've always thought penalties for infringement were too high. Any time you see a case it's always in the millions, and usually the person being sued couldn't come up with that kinda cash in a few lifetimes. Penalties should be realistic... maybe 3-5x the cost of the item 'stolen'.... they'd probably make more money if they handed that **** out like traffic tickets rather than big court cases where they can never collect.... I think they just want to ruin a few peoples lives for the shock factor... either way not cool.
