One should not tempt fate...personally, as a former jury member and juror 
foreperson, I hope that my time is not spent dealing with this lamentable law 
the next time I am summoned  because as the ultimate decider of fact, there are 
far more important questions to decide involving judgment of the lives of 
others. I find it difficult to hold copyright infringment as a criminal offense 
greater than the strangulation  followed by being thrown down a flight of 
stairs of the last case I sat in judgement with others. Copyright offenses are 
pale things that border on insignificance.
