A River Of Illegal DVDs

In the UK one of every three DVDs sold is said to be an illegal copy. “No one knows exactly how big the market is for bootleg discs, but already this year more than a million copied DVDs have been seized in the UK. Compared to videos, which are bulky and offer compromised quality, the new digital format is a bootlegger’s delight. The discs are cheap, light and easy to transport, while copying is quick and quality does not degrade.”
