RIAA damages $5 per month?
The RIAA has sued over 10,000 people in the US for music downloading. They claim thousands of dollars in damages, and apparently typically settle for a payment of around $3,000 to end the suits. With legitimate paid music downloading sites becoming more popular, some are arguing that the RIAA can't possibly suffer any more damages than the amount one can pay on one of these sites. The $5.00 per month figure comes from the recent Yahoo subscription service.
Of course, I'm sure the RIAA would not agree.
