Just the thought that a publicized suit against a vendor will detail something that will turn away future customers is usually enough to deter the vendor.

I do support that content creators and/or retailers should have some means to protect their wares and not have to sit back and be totally at the mercy of unauthorized downloaders/uploaders. But I feel that above all, personal privacy and civil liberties of the individual must be guarded from unnecessary intrusion, and there must be due process. It's a thorny issue, with no easy answers, no doubt about it.

I know one thing, Brien's scheme as described, of demanding compliance from retailers to cough up their customer's personal info upon demand OR ELSE, is utterly repugnant to me personally, and in my humble opinion they shouldn't be allowed to do it.
It's not a solid point. What makes the physical example significantly different from digital piracy is that:
1) the physical store will have evidence of a crime happening in their store and
2) it would be a person stealing from their store, so at the moment of the theft the store is the owner or the object being stolen.
