It seems like bootleggers are either getting a little more stupid, or really brave. I went to a street festival in a neighboring county a week or so ago. As I was checking out the different boothes, I noticed one of them was selling music CD's and movies, both VHS and DVD. So I went to go check it out, thinking I could find a good deal on some used DVD's. I started checking out the music CD's and noticed that they we're all shrink wrapped, current titles. Upon closer inspection of the cover art I realized that the front and back inserts were made with an ink jet printer. All the other CD's I looked at revealed the same thing. I asked the person working the booth if these were CDR's, and she said they were CD's (probably not knowing the difference), so then I asked if they were copies and she said they were. I was really surprised that she would admit that. Then I started looking at the DVD's she had there. After seeing the first one, I didn't have to go any further. In a standard shrink-wrapped DVD case was a copy of Red Dragon, you know, the one that is currently in theaters. This total disregard of my favorite medium really got under my skin. This being a large outdoor event with thousands of people, and held before the DC area sniper was caught, there was a large showing of local sheriff deputies and state police. So I went and found the first state trooper I could, and informed him of my discovery. I went back to the booth and hung around for a little while to see what would happen. About 5 minutes later the trooper came to the booth and looked around, in a "just browsing" kind of way, and then left. I thought he just blew it off, until about 15 minutes later he came back with another trooper and started asking questions. About 5 minutes went by, and the next thing you see is the troopers locking up the booth operators, and 4 sheriff deputies came and boxed up everything and took it away. I would say they had to box up 200 to 300 CD's and DVD's. Hopefully Universal Studios will see this, and in appreciation give me an advance copy of Red Dragon!!! Okay, I can wish can't I. --Wayne p.s. And, for those of you wondering. No, I did NOT buy any of the material they were selling.
