Ok, here's my two cents on the issue.
Anyone who breaks this law does in fact owe the recording company the 70 cents or whatever. The $750 is pure garbage, although I could see the
government fining lawbreakers an amount like this, but to give that money to the recording company is silly. If I steal something worth X dollars
from my neighbour, they can only sue me in civil court for X dollars, unless I somehow caused other damage, too, like loss of wages (stealing tools
for work or something). Stealing songs from the recording industry deprives them of revenue, but nothing else, and no additional money should be
given to them for no reason.
