After a tortuous route through the U.S. legal system, a court has decided that a punishment first handed down to a file-sharer in 2009 should stand. The First Circuit Court of Appeals said it had not hesitated in its decision to uphold the $675,000 damages award against a Boston student who shared 30 songs online, adding that it is this kind of behavior Congress was trying to deter when it amended the Copyright Act.
