Wired.com reported today that the RIAA had asked Jammie Thomas-Rasset, who was convicted of file-sharing in a case that began in 2007, to “publicly extol the virtues of the Recording Industry Association of America’s anti-piracy platform.” In exchange, Thomas’ $222,000 fine would be reduced.
Although details of this exchange were general and abstract, it is concrete that Thomas is “pretty opposed” to this proposition by the RIAA. Thomas’ attorney, Michael Wilson, would rather consider the option for Thomas to file for bankruptcy protection.
Thomas herself has indicated that she would rather go bankrupt.
