Mother Jones and Property Rights

I honestly did not think that I would ever be offering a link to Mother Jones, but this recent piece on intellectual property rights brings up some hilarious and unfortunately, all too real lawsuits.

"Amoung the 16,000 people thus far sued for sharing music files was a 65-year-old woman who, though she didn’t own downloading software, was accused of sharing 2,000 songs, including Trick Daddy’s “I’m a Thug.” She was sued for up to $150,000 per song."

Hilarious, but unfortunate.
