Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
A legal system may be evaluated in a variety of ways by
economists, legal scholars, or moral philosophers. Through most of
this article, however, I shall assume that it has only one purpose:
economic efficiency. I view a legal
system as a set of rules designed to affect behavior; a change in
legal rules is an improvement if the summed benefits to those
affected, measured by their money equivalent, is larger than the
summed losses, where the money equivalent of a benefit or loss is the
largest sum the affected party would pay to receive the benefit or
avoid the loss.
From this perspective, i think that the larger and wealthier company should be punished more severely.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
