The consequences behind illegally downloading music and sharing it are serious. Joel Tenenbaum was ordered to pay $675,000 in damages for the songs he illegally downloaded and shared. I am on favor of the courts decision and don't support illegal downloads at all. If you want to listen to your favorite artist's new album you should pay for it and actually support him, the risk behind illegal downloads is serious.

Anyone can be sued for illegally getting music. Record companies are aloud to charge anyone who illegally takes their content and charge them anywhere from 750$ to 30,000$ per infringement. If your case goes to court, the law allows you to sue for as much as 150,000$ per track taken, if the jury finds you guilty.
