Poor old Jammie Thomas is the woman who was convicted of file sharing and ordered to pay the recording industry $220,000 in compensation.
She is now attempting to make some of the money back – and fund an appeal – by selling t-shirts and underpants on the internet. Here is a photograph of her underpants:
The single mother, who earns around $40,000 a year, was caught sharing files and offered an out-of-court settlement for a few grand. She declined, fought it in court, lost, and was hit with the $220k order.
So if you want to avoid having to sell underpants on the internet, don’t pirate music. That’s a very strong message they’re sending out to the kids.
