Submission + - CRIA Faces $60 Billion Law Suite

jvillain writes: The Canadian Recording Industry Association faces a law suite for 60 Billion dollars for wilful infringement.

These numbers may sound outrageous, yet they are based on the same rules that led the recording industry to claim a single file sharer is liable for millions in damages.

Since these exact same companies are currently in the middle of trying to force the Canadian Government to bring in a DMCA for Canada it will be interesting to see how they try to spin this. I guess they were right after all about flagrant copy right issues happening in Canada.
