JURIST - Paper Chase: Supreme Court declines to hear appeal of $675,000 damage award for music sharing

This is such a travesty and, one hopes, will only come back to haunt Sony et al. Personally, I resolved several years ago after the Rootkit incident never to buy a Sony product.  This lawsuit of theirs only reinforces my view. One can only hope the trial court will have the good sense to reduce the damages. This award goes way beyond punitive into the stratosphere of punishment. I suspect actual damages were probably only $300 if that.  The damages awarded were 200 times that.
