The lesson in this sad case is do not to hire a law professor as counsel. I wonder how much of the award Billion Dollar Charlie is covering. Right.

The other problem with cases like this one is that it just feeds the public contempt for the Law and the Judicial System, and the perception that they both are just agents of big money thugs, when they see a person fined $675k for swiping thirty songs that are available on iTunes for 99 cents each. Having said that, Tenenbaum was given plenty of opportunities to stop but chose to thumb his nose at the warnings.

@1: He should have hired Dershowitz.

The defendant could have easily chosen STOP after being cautioned that he was kicking hornets .
