Have you looked at the evidence in this case, Derek? Records from this woman's ISP reportedly show that 1,702 tracks were being offered for download from her IP address and using a "screen name" which she admits that she has used for many years. There does not appear to be any dispute that she was the one using the computer. It seems like a completely "open and shut" case and personally I hope that they throw the book at her to make an example to others that so-called "sharing" of music tracks is not an "acceptable" thing to do.
