Whatever you do, don't let them get away with it.
Statutory damages in copyright cases is $750-$150,000 per infringement; they were put in place precisely as a deterrent. Without the statutory damages the magazine would only be liable for the actual damages, which would make stealing articles much more profitable, since if they got caught, they would only have to pay what they would have paid in the first place.
Other than finding a lawyer, you may want to forward that transcript off to the magazines legal department, or whomever is that editors boss. Then just sit back and watch the fireworks.
