“The court fined the music company 59,50 euros for the plaintiff’s damages and an additional 5000 euros as a punitive fine.” Wow! Will this ever bankrupt Warner Music!

It’s not the fine that’s the important bit here it’s the fact they’re now banned from doing it ever again. It sets a very strong president for all types of media - film and music!
