Tim Starback again

Emigre's Tim Starback is at it again. In this piece, he argues in a court case for the introduction in the USA of penalties (to internet posters and web site owners) equal to the losses in sales of software producers. Seems like our field is taken over by lawyers and going the way of malpractice suits. So, if we understand Tim, companies would cash in without actually selling anything. Life on the net and the web will become hell, or will it? Let us see, hundred million users, of which 95% have illegally copied fonts or software. If each one gets sued, the courts will be busy until the year 3000. Great idea, Tim, keep it up. If I make one font, price it a 1 million dollars, and catch one person posting it on the net, can I sue that person for the loss of say one sale, or one million dollars?
