The RIAA is suing the website AllofMP3.com on behalf of EMI, Sony BMG, Universal Music, and Warner Music in the amount of $150,000 for each of the 11 million songs that were downloaded from June to October of 2006. That comes to a lawsuit totaling $1.65 trillion!

I think AllOfMP3 should offer to settle the lawsuit by giving the RIAA $1.65 trillion dollars worth of free downloads.

Yeah, they'll see every penny of that lawsuit. ;-7 These lawsuits have basically become like bidding wars. Negotiate a price to make the other go away and be done with it.

The United States even went as far as blocking Russia’s entrance into the World Trade Organization (WTO) until they shutdown the site.

Over music?!
