A three-judge appeals panel has ruled Jammie Thomas-Rasset, who illegally downloaded and shared two-dozen songs online more than six years ago, owes record companies $222,000 for copyright violations, the Associated Press reports.
The federal appeals court has sent the case back to Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis. In July 2011, he slashed a $1.5 million judgement to $54,000.
Thomas-Rasset was first found liable in 2007 and ordered to pay $222,000 in damages. Wikipedia breaks down the legal history.
