quote: For the life of me I cannot imagine what was going through the minds of those jurors or those judges.
quote: Judge Davis, despite strong criticism of the damage award, had no kind words for Thomas-Rasset. He noted that "Thomas-Rasset’s refusal to accept responsibility for her actions and her decision to concoct a new theory of the infringement casting possible blame on her children and ex-boyfriend for her actions demonstrate a refusal to accept responsibility and raise the need for strong deterrence." The judge even concluded that she "lied on the witness stand by denying responsibility for her infringing acts and, instead, blamed others, including her children, for her actions."

quote: Honestly what I do not understand is why if you physically steal something you pay less than if you "steal" something digital.
