Did you hear the one about the world’s most infamous music file-sharer being asked to publicly extol the virtues of the Recording Industry Association of America’s anti-piracy platform?
The RIAA is suggesting Jammie Thomas-Rasset do just that. In exchange, the recording studios’ lobbying and litigation arm would reduce a $222,000 jury verdict the Supreme Court let stand in May — her punishment for sharing 24 songs on the now-defunct file-sharing service Kazaa.
However, the 36-year-old mother of four and the nation’s first file-sharer to challenge a Recording Industry Association of America lawsuit, said she would rather go bankrupt.
“I’m not doing it,” the Minnesota woman said in a telephone interview today. She said she earns a small salary working in the natural resources department of a local Native American tribe.
