[ARSCLIST] Article on a lawsuit related to illegal downloading

The article below discusses, "Joel Tenenbaum, accused in August 2007 of swapping seven songs on KaZaA...The basic argument... first, the damage awards in these cases are simply excessive and violate the Constitution's 14th Amendment. Second, these are essentially criminal cases and Congress has unconstitutionally delegated prosecutorial power to a "private police force" (the music business). And, finally, because the cases are essentially criminal, they should not be tried under the standards of civil law."
Thoughts on the subject?
