I agree, the first article paints a very different picture from the second. first article talks about maximum sentences being at-least 2 year or 5 years for aggravated circumstances, the 2nd article they have becomes minimum sentence. In the first article there is also a section (under IP spoofing) stating 'However, no criminal sanctions should apply to "minor cases", i.e. when the damage caused by the offence is insignificant.' This could be very significant
