For the second time in under a month, a court has confirmed a six-figure statutory damages award against an illegal music downloader, reports Baker & Hostetler.

In the latest development in a six-year long dispute, the Eighth Circuit issued a unanimous decision reinstating a $220,000.00 jury verdict against Ms. Jammie Thomas-Rasset for illegally downloading and distributing music through Kazaa, a peer-to-peer file sharing application.
