I've wondered about implementing this type mechanism for corporate crimes/fines. If I'm not mistaken, typically the law attempts to establish the value of harm or benefit achieved and levy a fine based on that. What if instead it was revenue based regardless of what benefit the crime achieved. Then corporations would have strong incentives to not commit such violations.

We could also consider a three strike law for corporationsns as well. I haven't seen much discussion on these approaches.
