THIS ISN'T THE ANSWER

Here's another wonderful example of a misapplied law.

You've got a college kid who is barely escaping going to jail for having "illegal" copies of movies on his computer's hard drive.

This poor kid was the first in the nation to be convicted under a law that was designed to combat piracy of movies and songs. Arresting and convicting this kid is like arresting and convicting some poor weedhead for smoking a joint, congratulating yourself that you're winning the war on drugs.

What about going after the guys who actually sell pirated property.
