Surely Kiwi’s who down-load Lady GaGa should lose a limb?

The Recording Industry of N.Z has issued ISP Orcon the first infringement notices for illegal downloads. The notices, seventy-five in total, specifically target the heinous crime of down-loading the latest abominations by Lady GaGa and Rihanna. Regrettably The Copyright Tribunal has the right to only fine convicted copyright infringers a paltry $15,000. $15K is totally out of whack for a crime of this nature and an insult to public decency. I ask you does the punishment meet the crime? Surely just listening to Rihanna is a prisonable offence in itself, the purchase of a Lady GaGa album enough to justify the amputation of a limb? Frankly the current copywrite law is toothless unless we can see public executions by guillotine for those that flout musical decency and commit three offences (a.k.a Crimes against Humanity) in respect to Lady GaGa, Rihanna and their ilk? Say buying a DVD and 'Best Of' collection. I’m sure The Conservative Party has this as one of their ‘non negotiable’ polices.
