    Bottom line is, she never will Mars.....Her lawyer will probably get it set up where she only sends in like $25 bucks a month for the rest of her life...Still sucks.

    As the old saying goes, " You can't get blood from a stone".....

    Rumor has it that the IRS can.

    She should have settled for $3500 like everyone else instead of trying to fight it.
    1700 songs total were linked to her account (although they only went after 24 for simplicity sake).
    That is just over $2 per song had she settled.

    $3500 for a settlement eh?
    I wonder how much she paid her lawyer to fight the case.

    I'd say "too much".

    Lets hope they never find my house. I have 20 times that amount.

    It is silly that she was even sued. Are they just trying to make an example of someone to try and stop others from doing it? The amount of 'free' stuff on the internet is endless because the internet is basically user created. As soon as the government, or whomever, tries to take away the freedom thats online, we are in big trouble.

    I only use itunes to get my own cds and ones from the library, onto my ipod. Works out pretty well, although i thought my 8gig ipod would hold 1000, it barely holds 500.

    It isn't the government, it is the record labels who are losing money as a result of people trading "free" songs.
    She wasn't alone with the lawsuit.
    Thousands of people were sued in an effort to make a statement and stop them from doing it.
    And as soon as they were sued, the record labels offered a settlement of $3500 to each of them, which in every case was less than the market value of the songs.
    They didn't want it to go to trail, they wanted to make a big statement with minimal cost to the people involved.
    This dumb chick (or her lawyer) decided to take a stand and fight them in court.
    Unfortunately, she never had a leg to stand on - the music was and always has been copyrighted, so it was a dumb move.
    She was found guilty not once, but twice, in two different trials.
