DVD detection dogs: Coming soon to a Customs facility near you

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Matthew Poole, May 11, 2006.

  1. No, this is not a joke. Because Customs officers have nothing better to
    do, the MPAA is now training dogs to detect DVD's, and placing them at
    Customs facilities in the US.

    And let'sn never forget that MPAA are the poeple that devised the
    loathsome region coding system, and counts playing a DVD out of region
    as piracy.

    These people seriously need to be stopped in their tracks.
