Remember that girl, Jammie Thomas, who stole 24 songs back in 2006? Well according to CNET she finally she’s on the hook for $62,500 per song and that comes out to a $1.5M settlement. Capitol records was the main plaintiff in the case and they, along with the rest of the Recording Industry Association of America, had this to say:

We are again thankful to the jury for its service in this matter and that they recognized the severity of the defendant’s misconduct,” the RIAA said in a statement. “Now with three jury decisions behind us along with a clear affirmation of Ms. Thomas-Rasset’s willful liability, it is our hope that she finally accepts responsibility for her actions.

As Apple says, “Don’t steal music.”
