    Are these things 'orwellian' or 'draconian' ?

    The term draconian has come to be used to refer to any unusually harsh law.

    "Orwellian" is an adjective describing a situation, idea, or societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society.

    Could be a bit of both I guess. We're not free to do as we wish with our bottles (Orwellian) and the punishment for flouting the rule seems heavy-handed (Draconian).
    How about 'Barberian' to cover both?
