More RIAA insanity

All these insane punishments for file sharing make my head spin.  I’m a musician, so I know that musicians deserve their pay (even though they don’t get what they righfully deserve thanks to record companies, but that’s another story), but these fines are insane.  But what’s more insane is that there is no precedence whatsoever for WHAT the fine should be.  In one case we have almost $2 million for 24 songs, and now we have $27,000 for 37 songs.  Where are these numbers coming from?!??!

    So, if the RIAA gets this money, are they going to distribute it accordingly to the bands shared?
