Costs/dimension/Lessig: Each constraint imposes a different kind of cost on the dot [(s) e. g. a thing, a person] for engaging in the relevant behavior—in this case, smoking. The cost from norms is different from the market cost, which is different from the cost from law and the cost from the (cancerous) architecture [(s) technical structure] of cigarettes.
The cost of “piracy” is significantly less than the cost of spam. Indeed, the total cost of spam—adding consumers to corporations—exceeds the total annual revenues of the recording industry. (1) So how does this difference in harm calibrate with what Congress has done to respond to each of these two problems?
