Joel Tenenbaum fined $675 for pirated music

Tenenbaum was fined today and ordered to pay $675,000 for illegally downloaded music. I checked out his blog and he provides a complete timeline of the case. It is really interesting since the 25-year-old's drama began at the age of 16 (in 2003).

"2003 : Letter is sent to Joel’s parents’ house, requesting $5250 for 7 songs that Joel (age 16) allegedly downloaded. Joel sends check of $500, explaining his financial situation as a student. The check is returned."
