A jury of 12 people, including an amateur musician, was seated Oct. 2 in the trial of Jammie Thomas, who is being sued by the recording industry for allegedly illegally sharing music online.

Thomas, a 30-year-old mother of two, is the first of 26,000 people sued by the industry to take a case to trial. She is accused of illegally sharing 1,702 songs for free on a file-sharing network.
