The laws on piracy?

  Muckleface 15:43 21 Jun 2003


I have a freind who copies music, movies, software, everything realy on his PC.

He downloads the media from the net or borrows copies from freinds and then burns the various thing onto a DVD/CD.

He doesnt sell the things he makes but he does distribute them to freinds, family, etc.

I told him he could get into trouble but I wasnt realy sure of the various laws governing this sort of thing.

Also, how likely is it that he will get caught and if he was caught how strict are the punishments?
