A court in the US has ordered a woman to pay $222,000 (£109,000) in damages for illegally file-sharing music.
The jury ordered Jammie Thomas, 32, from Minnesota, to pay for offering to share 24 specific songs online - a cost of $9,250 per song .
Record companies said she had illegally shared a total of 1,702 songs.
Ms Thomas, who denied the charges, was the first person accused of illegal file-sharing who decided to fight the case in court.
Each year, millions of households illegally share music files, and the music industry takes it as a serious threat to its revenue.
About 26,000 lawsuits have been filed against alleged file-sharers, but most defendants settle privately by paying damages amounting to a few thousand dollars.
However, contesting the charge and losing will cost Jammie Thomas almost a quarter of a million dollarshttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7029229.stm
