From Wired: you just can't make this stuff up.

The Motion Picture Association of America said Friday intellectual-property holders should have the right to collect damages, perhaps as much as $150,000 per copyright violation, without having to prove infringement.

"Mandating such proof could thus have the pernicious effect of depriving copyright owners of a practical remedy against massive copyright infringement in many instances," MPAA attorney Marie L. van Uitert wrote...
In other words, "we don't need proof, just pay up."

Gotta love how these criminals operate. And think: they've done this to five-year-olds, retired grandmothers, and just about anyone else they can think of completely at random and expect to get away with it.

Nevermind that actually having to prove your case is a basic part of any sane justice system...
