Joel Tenenbaum, a graduate student at Boston University who must pay four record labels $675,000 in damages for downloading 30 songs online, has been ordered by a U.S. District Court judge to destroy his illegal music files, according to the Associated Press. In July, a federal jury in Boston ordered Tenenbaum to pay damages to the record companies for copyright violation. In addition to destroying his music files, Tenenbaum was ordered to refrain from any further illegal downloading.
