RIAA lose Jammie Thomas mistrial appeal

The RIAA has reportedly lost its appeal on the declaration of a mistrial by the judge in the Jammie Thomas peer to peer copyright infringement case. A jury had originally ordered Ms Thomas to pay $222,000 in damages but the judge later agreed that he had inadvertently misled the jury in his final directions to them relating to the consideration of their verdict.
