This new verdict is as "monstrous and shocking" as the $1,940,000 verdict was. After reading through many articles on the history of this case, I have to proclaim it a farce. Since when don't you need actual, admissible evidence to prosecute someone? The only evidence they had was from MediaSentry, which, at least according to an appeal that was filed, may violate wiretap laws and state private investigator laws. In fact, there was a court ruling in 2007 which proclaimed that this company was operating without a private investigator's license, rendering their evidence in that case inadmissible. If the RIAA is going to try to prosecute for this type of thing, they should at least use legal means to gather their evidence. The jury is in essence awarding the RIAA for ignoring due process and illegally obtaining information which should not have been admitted in the court case. Since they would no longer have admissible proof of her sharing the files, given that MediaSentry's evidence was illegally obtained, then the RIAA should receive no reward. I'm not saying that what she (Jammie Thomas-Rasset) did was right or wrong, that's not my call, but my observation is that the RIAA has performed its share of misconduct all throughout this trial, yet that's being ignored and they're being rewarded statutory damages for copyright violations that they can't legally prove with legally obtained evidence.
