BMG Rights Has New Plan for Infringers

BMG TARGETS FILE-SHARERS: BMG Rights Management is offering illegal file-sharers amnesty for the cost of two albums. The music publisher is giving ISP customers who are sent DMCA notices for infringement a chance to pay $20, which  "finally, unconditionally, irrevocably and absolutely releases, acquits, remises and forever discharges" them from future legal action. With the court recently upholding Jamie Thomas-Rasset’s fine of $9,250 per illegal file-share, that’s a bargain—the best infringers ever had—and it could just turn into a steady revenue stream for the pubbery.
