Brainerd Woman found guilty in File-Sharing Suit

(AP) This out of Minneapolis--a Federal Jury has ruled that Jammie Thomas-Rasset of Brainerd violated several music copyrights in the nation's only file-sharing case to go to trial. According to the jury, they found that Thomas-Rasset "committed willful violation" of the copyrights on 24 songs. The jury awarded the recording companies $1.92 million, or $80k per song. This is the second trial--the first one in 2007 had awarded the recording companies a $222,000. settlement--but a new trial was ordered after the judge in that case decided he had erred in jury instructions.
