A jury in Minneapolis decided that Jammie Thomas-Rasset, was liable for $1.5 million in copyright infringement damages to Capitol Records, or $62,500 for each song she illegally shared in April 2006.
Jammie the Minnesota woman who has been fighting the recording industry over 24 songs she illegally downloaded and shared online four years ago, has lost another round in court.
“We’re again thankful to the jury for its service in this matter and that they recognized the severity of the defendant’s misconduct,” the RIAA said. “Now with three jury decisions behind us along with a clear affirmation of Ms. Thomas-Rasset’s willful liability, it’s our hope that she finally accepts responsibility for her actions.”
Thomas-Rasset is expected to appeal before Michael Davis, the chief judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, who had previously slashed the damage award in an earlier judgment against Thomas-Rasset.
