Now, that is how you fight piracy, IMHO. Not by forcing everyone to deal with the movie/music industries’ DRM (Digital Rights Madness) pointlessness, which only incourages people to break DRM, even if for legit reasons.

Why not just make offenders pay a fine per file?

It’s no different than anywhere else. Notice that FBI warning on copyrighted materials?

If they can get all the file-downloaders into prison, maybe a lot fewer people will fly planes into buildings.

Right?

One thing - it might reduce TSA theft-opportunities because so many electronics consumers would be in prison instead of airports!

Absolutely ridiculous…there are far worse crimes in the world than piracy where the majority would not have spent the money for whatever they are downloading in the first place.
