The case of the copyright owner actually having lost that amount is not
made. The math probably is that they guesstimate so and so many potential

is how a criminal protection racket works, it should not be how LAW works.

They could have made a sane case against her and gotten a reasonable
conviction and made their point and it would have stuck beautifully,
instead they undermined it via the extreme distaste it causes. LAW has to
be reasonable and there is no reason to find.
The intent of the lawsuit has been to willfully ruin her life. There is NO
WAY that consequence fits the action nor negligence on her part, willful
or not. And that is why it is plain wrong.
And that is what the trial judge said. He agrees with you. The problem is
with the law, and possibly the jury, who chose to uphold the law against the
call of conscience.
She'd have been smarter to fess up and ask for lenience, than to claim
she'd not done it, and face a jury to whom she had lied.
I do not wish for my interest in justice to depend on her intelligence.

You should lament this day, and this phenomenon.
Our democratic society rests almost solely on the basis of rule of
law. Sure, if the law is wrong, change it.
So, what is the per-violation penalty for violating US and
international copyright laws?
If you ask me, this woman got off light.
What is the difference between what this woman did and anyone breaking
into YOUR place of work and stealing everything in the building.
PLEASE! DO NOT presume to have a valid value judgement on the quality
of lack thereof of this musical "product" that was stolen.
What makes your life and my life liveable is that we can turn our work
into a work product and sell it to our employer or the general public
so we can put food on the table. Is the work product of anyone on this
post so sacred and perfect that someone else couldn't reasonably opine
a conclusion of "shit?"
Without that we have no society, because if you can't eat you can't
Any society that so debases its cultural values as to presume it
acceptable to offer it up to a vast cleptocracy will certainly go the
way of many other extinct cultures and nationalities. Can you say
"pillage and rape?"
THINK ABOUT IT.
