Losing internet access is severe. I would rather lose my car than be cut off from the net. It is more akin to being banned from using mains electricity. The whole supposed moral argument here rests on copyright being a form of property, which is plain silly (property rights do not lapse, they are not an idea that got thought up relatively recently, they do not keep varying on government whims, etc.).
