"A federal appeals court has reinstated a $675,000 judgment against a Boston University graduate student who admitted to downloading music on Internet file-sharing sites, in violation of copyright protection laws. The US Circuit Court of Appeals for the First Circuit decided in the case of Joel Tenenbaum, the largest case of its kind and the first to reach the federal appeals court level. The court rejected Tenenbaum’s assertions that he did not violate copyright protection laws because he was a consumer, not someone looking to make a profit." (09/20/11)
