CD collector sued for downloading songs years ago

Here is another sad example of the MPAA going way too far to nail their customers for P2P file sharing. Brett Bojrab claims he hadn't downloaded music for years, but he had Kazaa on his computer and was providing music for upload the whole time. Kazaa's default setting is to allow sharing, so if you aren't too computer saavy and don't check these things, you could be in this guys shoes.

The irony is that this guy has probably spent well more than most people collecting hundreds of CDs and going to concerts. He already destroyed all the music but the MPAA is demanding he also pay about $5,000 on top of that. Bojrab is currently in pretty bad shape financially, like many people, five grand is an amount of money that would put this guy on the street. This suit must feel like being stabbed in the back for him.

You should get Cardozo to set up an IP clinic whose goal is to defend filesharers in such financial straits. They seem to have a clinic for everything else.
