Big Music Sues Luddite Mom
“It was Easter Sunday and Patricia Santangelo was in church with her kids when she says the music recording industry peeked into her computer and decided to take her to court.
“Santangelo said she has never downloaded a single song on her computer, but the industry didn’t see it that way. The woman from Wappingers Falls is among the more than 16,000 people who have been sued for allegedly pirating music through file-sharing computer networks.
“The industry is demanding thousands of dollars to settle the case, but Santangelo, unlike the 3,700 defendants who have already settled, said she will stand on principle and fight the lawsuit.”
