| local car boots and places where counterfeit DVDâs are sold, your stance on 
| file sharing and how you intend to tackle it is, IMO very vague.

| 3. Rob your neighbor: the fine is $375,000
| 4. Burn a house down: The fine is just over $375,000

| 6. Start a dogfighting ring: the fine is $50,000
| 7. Murder someone: The maximum penalty is only $25,000 and 15 years in jail,
| and depending on your yearly salary, would probably be far slighter a penalty
| that $2 million.
