Better to Just Get High
According to the Wikipedia article Caning in Singapore, persons commiting "piracy" or "rape" are subject to the same number of lashings: "at least 12." Piracy charges are similarly proportioned in the United States. It's nice to know Singapore takes intellectual property seriously.
Interestingly, "trafficking in arms" will earn you "at least 6” lashings.
