Good ol' RIAA...can't nail the people with terrabytes of music they're illegally file sharing, so smack that defendant with the few dozen songs around. That'll show 'em! They have to put an end to this, people are losing money to these criminals!
Yeah, it shouldn't matter the number of songs, or who the person was...they broke the law. But when you hear how the RIAA is losing billions (they aren't) because people are 'stealing' their product, but then they go after the thief who stole a penny's worth (relatively), how can you even care? It really makes you root for the 'bad' guy or gal.
