Jammie Thomas-Rasset to still face third piracy trial

Jammie Thomas-Rasset in court again next month

In a series of trials that dates back to 2007, Jammie Thomas-Rasset will once again go in front of a judge to appeal the damages in the copyright infringement ruling against her by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The trial is due to take place on November 2, despite lawyers' attempts to get the judge to again slash the damage award, last set at $54,000 down from $1.92 million.

The third trial will as a result only focus on the amount of damages rather than any fault. The jury will hear testimony about the size of fee that will need to be paid. Originally, the was ordered to pay $222,000, though this decision was thrown out due to a bad jury decision.

Jammie Thomas-Rasset was found guilty of illegally sharing 24 songs through Kazaa, but her attorneys and critics have claimed that the penlaties per song were wildly disproportionate to the actual damage. [via ArsTechnica]
