Do you really think that the Police would care/have enough time to track down some stolen CD's??? I would really love to live some place where, if somebody stole my CD case the police would track it down.
This is the reason that I stopped buying CD's. My CD's were stolen, reported it, nothing....., So I downloaded my entire collection instead of buying them. I haven't bought a CD since.
Iin a world where crime and theft is encourged, the fraud is not a real-world crime. No laws were broken, this persons good name and integrity is tarnished, but he has done nothing illegal and should not be facing any real-world consequences.
