Downloading vs. Shoplifting

This article makes an interesting point about the penalties for copyright infringment and shoplifting: "the penalties laid out for downloading one season of a TV show with BitTorrent are much harsher than if you actually stole a DVD set of the same show from a government store". Doesn't seem right to me, essentially it's the same crime, but in a real sense shoplifting is a more criminal act.
