Industry wants to ban woman from downloading

It's been just a few weeks since a federal jury ruled in a music-downloading case that a U.S. woman must pay $1.92 million.

Now, the recording industry wants to make sure Jammie Thomas-Rasset doesn't do it again.

Attorneys for the recording industry are asking a federal judge to bar Thomas-Rasset from downloading music, sharing music files and distributing songs to the public.

The attorneys also want a judge to order that Thomas-Rasset destroy all copies of recordings that she has downloaded without authorization.

Last month, a federal jury ruled Thomas-Rasset willfully violated the copyrights on 24 songs. In their request Monday, recording company attorneys say she actually distributed over 1,700 songs through a file-sharing network.

Messages left for Thomas-Rasset and her attorney were not immediately returned Monday.
