The fine seems to match the money spent on the shares and whatever profit he made from them and maybe some extra for punishment. I suppose that's fair

Agreed that the fine/penalty is fair.

Now the question becomes: does anyone work with Naka and/or PROPE ever again.

Appropriate for him, but the biggest punishment is that he's officially done in the games industry. His post-Sega career was already lackluster and his previous reputation as a diva was catching up to him. Never working in the games industry is an appropriate hell

Well, I guess now I won't have to think about the creator of Sonic being in prison.

I do not think he will be finding work anytime soon at any company given this incident. Sonic Team seems to have gone in it's own direction, however..

^His last game was actually Sonic Riders and he left in the middle of 06's development.
