Woman Says She Can't Pay $1.5 Million File-Sharing Fine

A Minneapolis mother is refusing to pay a $1.5 million fine for illegally downloading 24 songs, arguing she simply "can't." Jammie Thomas-Rasset has been battling the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the last four years in one of the RIAA's "top 3" longest-running cases, an RIAA spokeswoman said, basically since the industry body discovered 1,700 songs in her shared folder on P2P site KaZaA.
