Let's see... 40,000,000 claimed users.
Fine of $150,000.
Or, about .375 cents per user.
NOTE - that's POINT 375 cents... not 37 POINT 5 cents.

In a time when lawsuits can range in the millions, even the hundreds of millions, this doesn't even qualify as a slap on the wrist.

That reminds me of in the local supermarket, they're selling plastic bags for "0.10 cents each". I bet they'd actually charge you 10 cents if you bought one though.
