Daisybee- I should have read more attentively.
I'm by no means an expert in the law, but don't people sometimes get convicted on circumstantial evidence? If she was convicted solely for having Kazaa on her computer, that would be worrisome. But I wonder if there wasn't more that wasn't mentioned in the article?
As for the record industry and our whole economic system- it's not that difficult to simply opt out of it, rather than take to stealing stuff. Probably a lot healthier for you, too, as you now have a lot of free time and cash with which to visit friends and family. I find it a simpler moral issue than legal one, actually.
Ursa major- thanks. I've never heard the quote.
