This time suing a grandfather $600k b/c his 12yo grandson downloaded 4
DVDs, all of which he deleted and 3 of which they already had in
physical form.

well, MPAA goes after movies/DVDs. RIAA goes after CDs/mp3s.

Notice in this article that the number fairies are at it again, making up
things to shock people:

"Illegal downloading costs the movie industry an estimated $5.4 billion
a year, she [Kori Bernards, vice president of corporate communications
for MPAA] said."

Earlier this year, the *total* estimated loss due to piracy was less than
$3 billion per year, and that included the "industrial" piracy that takes
place in many countries.
