We had a bloke here in W Cumbria who was creating DVD's/CD's and selling them to workmates was sentenced to 15mths suspended last year and then brought back to court for an "Assets Hearing" where he was ordered to cough up £59,000 which meant he had to sell one of his houses to clear the debt within the court ordered time. click here
Yes this is illegal but we the British public have been getting ripped off for many years now in paying over the score for CDs/DVDs i feel the Music/Film industry only have themselves to blame for the amount of piracy that is going on at present??? ie Woolworths £15.99 for a Portishead album that has been on the go for 8yrs??
