Burn a CD, go to jail
If you break the law, the law will break you:
From this week onward, if you live in the UK and burn a CD containing "illicit recordings" -- i.e., anything infringing on copyright, such as a MP3 downloaded from a file-sharing service -- you could be gaoled for 10 years
, a more severe sentence than some handed out to murderers, rapists and paedophiles.
Uh-oh; better not make that mix CD for the friend I'm going to be visiting in London in that case.
