Think People Should be Jailed for Downloading Songs?

The IP bigwigs do. It has been discovered that the ACTA negotiations are leaning towards criminalizing non-commercial piracy, including downloading a song from eMule.
I understand that artists need to be paid. But jail for downloading music and movies is just ridiculous-you usually won't get jail for shoplifting a physical CD or DVD (and the fines will be lower than the civil damages for copyright infringement).
