$250,000: Maximum amount of non-economic damages that can be awarded to a patient in any health care lawsuit, under legislation passed by the House of Representatives last month but not yet voted upon by the Senate.

$1.5 million: Maximum financial penalty that a person can suffer for illegally copying as few as 10 songs, movies, books or other copyrighted works.
