In a do-over of the only music downloading case to make it to trial, Minnesota mother of four Jammie Thomas-Rasset has been found guilty of illegally sharing 24 songs over the internet. A federal jury decided she must pay the recording industry $80,000 per song, for a total of $1.9 million. Thomas-Rasset calls the fine "kind of ridiculous" and her attorney notes that songs can be downloaded for less than a dollar each.
What do you think? Does the fine fit the crime? Or is the recording industry overreaching by going after individuals who trade music online? We'll take a look at the case and your comments with Nicole Lapin during the 12pm ET hour of NewsRoom with Tony Harris.
