+ - Guilty verdict in first file sharing case

Submitted by PhysicsPhil
PhysicsPhil (880677) writes "CNN and Ars Technica are reporting that the jury has returned a verdict in Capitol Records vs. Jammie Thomas. In the first music sharing suit to go to trial, a jury found Jammie Thomas guilty of copyright infringement. Jurors ruled that the infringement was willful and awarded damages of $222,000 out of a possible $3.6 million. The plaintiffs alleged she shared a total 1702 songs, but focused on only 24 songs during the trial. As would be expected, plaintiffs are pleased, defendant is not."
