That is the main point:

Imagine that because there is credit card fraud, users are made to give a
DNA sample for every transaction. Does it happen for purchases that you do?
No. Go after the criminals, and leave the law abiding citizens alone. Don't
change the law to make it living hell for the citizens, and barely make a
dent in on the criminals.

Go after those who are selling copied games, copied DVDs, ...etc.

Leave everyone else alone.
