    Interesting -- I surely thought there had been more than one case, but I guess most people settle before that. I see where they're coming from by saying that making files available isn't infringement (although it obviously isn't right to do so). But, the truth of the matter is that all of those files were likely downloaded illegally themselves. So, even if they throw out the fact that the guy made them available to download, he still got them illegally himself. I'm not sure how they'll prove that, but I sure hope they do. :)
