It's been more than five years since defendant Jammie Thomas lost a $222,000 P2P file sharing lawsuit
. The case still remains unsettled after multiple rounds of appeals and new rulings... some of which actually threatened to increase the financial penalties involved. U.S. government officials confirmed this week that they support the prosecution's case and that the damages amount from the original 2007 ruling was fair. This could become pertinent if the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately takes the case on appeal.
By now, the legal expenses surrounding this case have surely exceeded $220,000 by a significant margin. Will it ever end? And is this issue worth all the time and money spent?
