Manhattan Federal Judge Kimba Wood Calls Record Companies' Request for $75 Trillion in Damages 'Absurd' in Lime Wire Copyright Case. Not as absurd as Rebecca Black's "Friday" - an Auto-Tuned stream-of-consciousness narrative that makes "Trapped in the Closet" seem like "A Day in the Life." (subscription required)

UPDATE (10/26/12): I engaged in a little back-and-forth with Wikipedia over the validity of the $75 trillion figure. I managed to back up my reporting, though.
