Amount should be commensurate to the value of the theft.
You can buy a track on the web for 70p so the punishment should be relative to the value. If I stole a snickers bar for 70p I would be asked to refund the value. In this case 24 songs at 70p should be fined £16.80 and perhaps a hundred pounds for the suffering to the record company.
