From Bloomberg:

    Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group and other record labels were awarded $1.92 million in the retrial of a Minnesota woman accused of swapping music over the Kazaa Internet service.

    The federal jury in Minneapolis said Jammie Thomas-Rasset, 32, of Brainerd, Minnesota, should pay $80,000 for each of the 24 songs that were swapped over the Kazaa, including “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls and “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns ‘n Roses. The first time the case went to trial in 2007, a jury awarded $9,250 per song, or $222,000.
