I dunno. You could try not stealing stuff? And paying for what you use?

With copyright infringement, the punishment should fit the crime. The economic damage is quite small in the individual action, but large in the aggregate. It is reasonable when most people pay to take some kind of action against repeat offenders.

Maybe a points system plus community service for people who ignore warnings and keep on stealing.
