This is why I no longer buy music or movies. As if the industry isn't wealthy enough, it has to impose its iron fist against those who probably were customers at some point. I'm sure this Boston Univ student has paid to see a movie or bought CD's in the past. THIS is how an industry treats people who very well MIGHT spend their money on a product at some point.
It won't be me. I won't be downloading for free, but I won't be buying it either. They aren't going to use MY money to increase THEIR riches while slamming people for downloading a few songs for their personal use.
People have committed far more heinous crimes and gotten away with far less punishment. Shows you the power of big business.

I have not bought a cd since they started that.
