Barbaric! This is just greed on the part of the so called 'music' industry. It will not affect me much because I only listen to classical music and could care less about illiterate(c)rappers, rockers, country morons and hip hop savages! I can't believe the court let this fine stand. The victim should leave the country after he graduates. Then he will not have to pay these parasites one thin dime!

Why to get such a risk ?
