    It's just how ridiculous this has become, and how twisted.

    To me, this only serves one purpose: divert attentions. "Ok, they need to pay, but don't be ridiculous", instead of "Should they pay anything".

    The actual amount they could get is still not going to be awarded or even feasible I doubt.

    I think LimeWire will have to give them an I.O.U. :D

    The Earth would, lol. Silly RIAA, they just don't give in, even when they know doing stuff like this not only doesn't work, but just makes fools out of them and gains more enemies.

    :D Well, two lessons here:

    1. A good part of the world hates the RIAA.

    2. This is why WOT can't be trusted well.

    Really though, I can't imagine too many people in that room this idea was cooked in really thought this was a good idea. This looks more like a scare tactic than something they actually thought they could do. Surely the number crunchers and a few lawyers were secretly thinking "Are you on something?".

    This is what i'm saying, discussion has turned to focus on the value, not the legitimacy of the suit.
    I'm not necessarily referring to the court, as it may not influence the decision, but public discussions.

    105 millions versus 72 trillion, that's only 6 orders of magnitude.
    Physicists make predictions and calculations with far greater margins of error.
