The amount they expect you to pay for downloading 24 songs is ridiculous.
If they can't prove that you had a SIGNIFICANT impact on sharing then you should only have to pay a small fine plus the price per song.
For example: 5,000 Dollar fine and then 99 cents per song.
I mean that could add up after a little bit, I know people who have downloaded well over 12,000 songs.
I just don't get how they are able to get away with this.. Fining that amount of money for something they can't really prove to an extent.
They can usually tell you downloaded, but often don't care. What they care about are the people who are sharing. Since they don't know
how much you alone have impacted on sharing in particular files, they just fine you millions.
Something needs to be done.. They should not be able to fine for something they can't prove...
