I think that they went a little far on that one. Where the hell are those kids going to come up with that kinda money no matter what kind of school they go to or how much money there parents have I don't think any one would pay that bill off.

History has shown that they like to go after the suppliers and not the demanders. Except for the case with the Verizon person they fall in the middle. Anyway, what I don't understand is why they're asking for such a large amount of money. I don're remimber them going after Napster, Scour Exchange, Aimster, eDonkey, Audio Galaxy, Freenet, nor Kazza and it's friends for such an amount and those companies atleast have $1-2 mil. I think I read somewhere that the files were being hosted from school. Now if that's true, I have one question how in the hell couldn't the school have known about this. Unless they're running say an OC2+ they''ve should've notice an extreme drop in available bandwidth. Shit my school needs to get some of that, damn T3 ain't worth a shit. I've seen 56k move faster than crap. What about their schooling, hope they don't get espelled? $120,000/song is not a resonable number. Half the crap being put out today isn't worth buying nor is any of these damn P-13 movies they keep throwing at us. Vin-diesel gets the fighting and repeatedly punches the guy in the face with all his weight. They guy gets up a only a trickle of blood fall from his mouth. The critic, parents, directors, editors writer hell the whole boat load is full of a bunch of pussies. Don't let me be man encharger I'll have the viewer pissing in their pants. Hell after seeing my movie you wouldn't be able to sleep for a week, because it'd be so scary oh lets not forget the blood. Critics want to say Ghost ship was to scary, those little punkies don't know a good movie when they see. They're the reason why PG-13s are taking over in addition to the producers and significant others knowing they'll get more money from a pG-13 movie than from a R one. Truthfully speaking 13-21yr. old will go see crap faster than an 25+yr. old person would.

I left the topic, I mis-spelled words, repeateddly, I used a bad word. I'm sorry I just alittle out of there....Please assept my apouloges.*smile*

you can sue anyone for anything and for any amount. The question is will you win it and will get money that you asked. I highly doubt they will get 0.001% out of their claim
