fbi anti piracy warning 385 No Mercy For Music Piracy

The Supreme Court has turned down an appeal from a Texas teenager who got in trouble for downloading music without paying.

The teen, Whitney Harper, acknowledges she used file-sharing networks to download and share three dozen songs. But she says the money she owes music companies should be reduced. She claims that as a young person, she was unaware that she was engaging in copyright infringement. The justices rejected that argument and the request that the fine for sharing the tunes be cut substantially.
