You had a great post, nicely supported by fact and logic, until you threw patent in out of nowhere. Why not just say "...and copyright laws and libertarian logic unfortunately provide too many examples."

Lonnie, Lonnie, Lonnie ... it's a well established fact that copyright and patent law are ill-conceived, from all the studies that have shown that they act contrary to their stated purpose, which is to "promote the progress of science and the useful arts".

The music filesharing punishments have indeed gotten out of hand - the punishments are illogical and unstreamlined, & those who perpetuate the crimes are often kids who 'should have known better.' Who gets away and who gets caught is merely luck! People need to realize that if they want to 'send a message' they should get serious about cracking down and come up with a way to organize those violating the filesharing/downloading laws. Until then - they're a joke, and people will hedge their bets!
