So you say. Do you run things?

I have been assured by a local lawyer that under our new laws, you can go to 
jail for 4 or 5 years for simple possession of a knock off cd or dvd disk. 
One which you bought in good faith from a still operating store in your city. 
Oh and plus a fine of more than $20,000 dollars for possession of that one 
copy. (You being someone living in the country where I do.)

Don't ask me to trust to such common sense theories holding. I see common 
sense being thrown out of the window more and more every day.

all the best,
