Judge in RIAA vs Thomas might grant new trial

Jonah Bomber Jonah Bomber writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Jonah Bomber writes ""Last year, a jury in Minnesota federal court found Jammie Thomas liable for copyright infringement based on songs the RIAA said it found in her computer. Thomas got hit with a $222,000 verdict. But now, as the WSJ reports, Judge Davis believes that his jury instructions might've been wrong. He told the jury that merely making songs available online for distribution to others was a copyright violation and that the record companies didn't have to prove distribution took place. He's since learned of a federal district-court case in Phoenix that ruled that making songs available was not copyright violation. Now, in a move that could portend bad news for the RIAA, Judge Davis says he might give Jammie Thomas a new trial.""
