Sued by RIAA? Get a free T-Shirt

A recent article on Boing Boing mentions a new insurance model by a company in Sweden. Tankafritt will pay all your fines in case you get sued by RIAA all for the measly $19 a year. Did I mention you will also get a free t-shirt? However, if RIAA is really out to get you and civil suit was filed, you will have to disclose any insurance you have thus prompting RIAA to raise claimed damages above the insured amount. Furthermore, the very fact you have purchased insurance can be considered evidence of willful infringement, which means damages of up to $150,000 for each infringing file. You can find more debates pertaining to copyright infringement insurances and their viability at this

. You can also visit Tankafritt (translation) for more details concerning their insurance plan.
