Remember that crime is legal for rich people (this applies to your country as well)

@eletrotupi In Finland, fines are progressive and that regularly makes rich people furious.

@eletrotupi Fines are ment as a deterrent, but the problem is that if the amount is fixed you end up giving individual punishmet because it depends on how difficult it is for you to pay it. One way to solve it is basing the fine amount on a persons income, like some of the Nordic counties do, at least for the more serious offences. Bezos would probably think again if the fines had a few more zeroes slapped on at the end.
