It is not like it would be hard to find people with way more. A court case over 7 songs is much weaker than a court case over 800 songs.
No, not if those 7 songs were far more popular and downloaded than the 800 songs.

I think the math is simple:

Number illegal downloads of your uploaded songs/(probability of getting caught) + $1.

If someone does something illegal and then gets caught the punishment is never break even. If it were, people would steal a lot more and then just risk getting caught and saying "oops, I guess I should have paid for this".
