Mum Ends Download Fight [pdf]

Sylvia Price has given up her battle to prevent the record industry imposing a £4,000 fine after her daughter illegally downloaded music from the web. The 53-year-old, who lives in Springbank, Cheltenham, hired a solicitor to fight the case against the British Phonographic Industry but now says she can’t afford to take it through the courts.

She has instead made a settlement offer of £2,500.

[…] She said it could take her 10 years to pay off the fine in monthly instalments of around £20.
