I've heard that this is roughly the same penalty as manslaughter.
2. Involuntary -- by a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by a sentence to the custody of the state board of correction not exceeding ten (10) years, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
What the fuck. Copying a few hundred songs for personal use and in the process you distribute them outwards to other people == manslaughter charges?
Sure, mansualghter is accidental, but you KILLED SOMEONE... This shit is innocent! Nobody's body is damaged and nobody is loosing a material object. For fuck's sake it's broadcast on the radio for everyone to listen to to begin with. (they pay royalty fees that are astronomical) Some terrorists need to go bomb the RIAA buildings at night when nobody's in them or something to get these rich fuckheads to pull their heads out of their greedy, slimey wet asses.
(ok I don't mean that but I'd feel good if that happened & nobody was injured)
