Which is why your position is even harder to understand because your company is already doing everything that would be requested of it by the SFC as part of a voluntary settlement. If there was a new accidental copyright violation, which in a big company it is always posible for something to fall through the cracks, then fixing that one issue and moving on would seem trivial considering all the infrastructure for doing so is already in place. What do you think is actually going to happen if some random product your company makes were to be found in violation of copyright?
If you think that the SFC would start arbitrarily trying to shut down products, and that a court would enforce those actions, well I think that's nonsense. Based on the written statements by the SFC I don't see them as a bunch of moustache twirlers who are itching to screw companies over using their compliance agreements as a lever, and I don't see any reasonable court enforcing injunctions against unrelated copyright (see RightHaven for how well this would go down in court)
In fact, judging by the SFCs written statements, their whole goal is to work themselves out of existence by getting compliance programs instituted at manufacturers and pushed up the supply chain so that these kind of casual violations don't happen because everyone knows the rules. The problem is that many people think that just because you can download something off the Internet that copyright doesn't exist, convincing your supply chain that this is not the case can fix the problem.
And about your Mayor Metaphor, you can plainly see from the SFCs tax documents that they are not asking for million dollar fines. If we presume this is just a convenient round number for the sake of argument then I guess I don't understand what the complaint is, that spending a thousand dollars on compliance efforts as in your example is somehow a bad thing relative to ignorance until you are caught.
