She was doing the "artists" a favor

24 illegal song downloads cost US woman 220,000 dollars

Thomas, an employee of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, an Indian tribe, was ordered to pay a 9,250-dollar fine for each of 24 shared songs cited in the case, including Godsmack’s “Spiral,” Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills” and Sara McLachlan’s “Building a Mystery.”


Fortunately the jury took into account the fact that many of them were really, really crappy — “Spiral,” by Godsmack, Sara McLachlan’s “Building a Mystery,” and Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills” among them. (We bet she’ll never hear “Bills, Bills, Bills” the same way again.)
