RIAA in pickle over Jammie Thomas ruling

The music industry will have to make some very tough choices within the next week about file sharer Jammie Thomas-Rasset.The Recording Industry Association of America wants to put the Thomas-Rasset affair behind it. The Brainerd, Minn., mother–who refused to settle with the RIAA for $5,000 over copyright infringement allegations, instead fighting it out in court–has been found liable of willful copyright infringement by two different juries and was ordered to pay damages of $222,000 in her first trial (a decision later thrown out) and $1.9 million last June in her retrial.
