ROFL.... 75 Trillion... need i say more
That is huge!!!!!
Now you're just mashing it!
If you still use limewire or something simular now a days your a moron....
Dr Evil must be behind this lawsuit lol.. I wonder if they all did the muhahahah laugh when they came up with the number.
If you can't figure out the proper "you're" to use in a simple sentence, you are a moron.
... WTF? they call that reasonable? GTFO... dam!
Limewire, need we say more?

I don't think they actually called it "reasonable," but if I was the judge I'd be grumpy over the waste of time. The lawyers involved with these sorts of things aren't stupid; they *knew* no court would approve a $400B verdict (and even if one somehow DID get approved, it'd go immediately to the Supreme Court.)
My guess is that the studios realized they'd get precious little recompense out of Limewire regardless of what they did and therefore elected to make as big a splash as possible.
XYZ, i freaking love that song!
At last, the winner of this case is those lawyer...... what u think if those lawyer get just 1% of this fine???? this is st*py.......
Thats more money than the GDP of the world, and more money than the music industry has made... ever.
Talk about rediculous
I think the record industry has an inflated value of their self-worth...
what about my damage for buying on iTunes we need limewire
I wonder where they're going to get the other $10 trillion dollars?
If anything they should considerably lower the amount, because that is laughably ridiculous.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I think they should triple the award and tell the lawyers to meet the defendants in a Colosseum with swords and shields. Winner gets to live.
(as long as we're being ridiculous, let's shoot the moon)
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
The record compaies sure show there losses well. I never knew you could loose that much profit and still make billions a year. ...lol

That is just insane. If I had even a hundreth of that I would be set for 20 lifetimes including inflation.
where are they all going to get all that money? thats more money that Bill Gates.
The idiocy is limitless... And that's all I have to say about that. (insert Forest Gump undertones)

Oh Limewire...... Just stupid.
Lol; those numbers are ridiculous, of course they know the court is only going to allow a 1/4 at best. So they figured they would at least try to cover there lawyer fees this time!
funny thing is....limewire was only the software. they stored no music...so how does this lawsuit even hold water.
*** YOU RIAA YOU WONT GET ***!!
Ok; Edit is not working, if anyone wants to see what I was trying to paste, then go to my profile real quick, lol dang great way to ruin a great joke entirely edit button!
i almost cryed from laughter :D
What Record labels sued Limewire with RIAA? I want to know to launch a international Boycott of them. Its Time Recording Label realize if they keep doing this absurd mess they are gonna be forced into bankruptcy. I for one am sick of the mainstream music industry and their absurdly bloated prices.
WHolland:funny thing is....limewire was only the software. they stored no music...so how does this lawsuit even hold water.
I'm guessing they don't have the ability to sue millions or track down the info of those who downloaded from Limewire, so they're taking the lazy way out by sueing the entire company.
Yeah, doesn't make that much sense that way either.
Who's the RIAA's damages consultant? Dr. Evil?
We demand 1 billion, gagillion, fafillion, shabolubalu million illion yillion...yen!
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Here you go - use it well: http://www.riaaradar.com/
LMAO@ The Graphs
I agree TayloKarras, but from what I have seen from the start of this thing between the RIAA and various services/individuals they have been successful at least in court to a degree. Although I seriously doubt they will ever get there money from the individuals. The amount's they have won from individuals one of us mere mortals would probably never make in a lifetime (IE: 5 million or more), I think on that women they sued they got something like 15 million, and I think she was a stay at home mom. Can you say ain't happnin!
Yeah thats a great picture is it not DScheive!!!!!
It's obvious that whomever thought that money amount up snorted his breakfast through a straw.
3vi1: I like the http://www.riaaradar.com/ link.
I can sympathize with a judge having to bear with the lunacy of it all ...but then again he was a likely to have been a lawyer at one time ..oh well
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
The RIAA needs to get real... $10 per song is the cost of an entire album so they are sueing them for the cost of an entire album for each downloaded song. I really hope that the music artists are seeing this absurdity and jumping ship from these labels when they get the chance.
I just wish the majority of money we paid for music went to the artists and not to the RIAA's lawyers.
Ok record labels listen when you say $75 trillion you need to hold your pinky up to your mouth like Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers movies.
This is just stupid. The record companies should thank file sharing sites for free advertising. I've bought cd's that I would've never even heard of if it wasn't for youtube or demonoid. Yeah I know that there are people out there that download all there music illegally and never buy a cd, but I think once people realize that full cd quality is way better than some lossy mp3, people will start buying more cds. Sure you can always download Flacs, but I think a lot of people stay away from that with all the bandwidth caps nowadays.
And $10 in damages over a single lossy mp3? wtf
JCunningham:And $10 in damages over a single lossy mp3?
I know right? iTunes sells songs for $99-$1.29 and yet the RIAA determines how much it's worth by throwing darts on the dartboard.
