While the total global wealth is somewhere at $194 Trillion (Credit Suisse number) the record companies see no problem arguing they are entitled to a number approaching 39% of it. I'm sure the attorneys are asking for this while keeping straight faces. All this while the record companies are adding no value to the product they haven't 'invented' either.
Then, we have a person who may have been disfigured by some doctor who may have been truly negligent and to resolve the out of control health care costs our elected officials see no problem enacting legal reforms limiting the amount of damages that person could receive.
What a sham. At least there is one judge who sees some logic.
