elchupacabra: Theaetetus:Say she set fire to your house... Is it a good reason that she shouldn't have to buy you a new house that she's a middle-class woman? Forget about fairness to her, what about fairness to you, the wronged party?The same applies, even if the RIAA companies are rich as gods. Compensatory damages are about repairing the wrong done to the plaintiff. The fact that that may be painful or bankrupting for the defendant is irrelevant, since the alternative would mean that someone is harmed and doesn't get made whole.Wow.
