New defense team for Jammie Thomas to take different tack in retrial


Next week in Minneapolis Jammie Thomas, a single mother of two from Brainerd, Minnesota, is scheduled to on trial for copyright infringement for the second time.

A jury found her guilty in 2007, ordering her to pay $220,000 in damages for illegally distributing 24 songs by the likes of Aerosmith, Green Day and Guns N’ Roses over the KaZaA peer-to-peer network. But a judge subsequently threw out the conviction.
