A fine over 600000 for sharing 30 songs? The punishment seems to far outweigh the crime.
I know its more than the guy just downloading the songs, but how many people could he possibly have uploaded it to? A digital song is worth about a buck? Even if he uploaded 1000 copies of each song, thats only 30000 dollars?
Here in Canada they were a bit more level headed when they wrote our new copyright law last year. There’s a max fine of 5000 for all infringements. I think it was intended to keep shit like this from happening.
