Riaa juror speaks out about case

It took the jury in Capitol Records v. Thomas only five minutes to find that 30-year-old Jammie Thomas had infringed recording industry copyrights on 24 music tracks, according to the first juror to speak out on the verdict.

The remaining five hours of deliberation was spent debating the appropriate financial penalty, with jurors haggling for both higher and lower awards, before settling last week on the final $222,000 figure, according to juror Michael Hegg, in an exclusive interview with THREAT LEVEL Tuesday.

Well, the poor woman did have everything against her, not that she could do much more to claim its innocence. Of course, paying THAT money for a petty crime... I've seen true criminals getting away from prison with much less substantial fines.

And let's face the facts... a woman that digs Dream Theater should be given a price, not a fine, for its good taste :) Hmmm, the facts provided by Wired and my other source of information clash in their information of the songs downloaded by Mrs. Thomas...

Josh, do you have a link for the article?
