Something new this time :d Last time, it was a steamroller :wink:


gee, software that costs half an average chinese worker’s yearly wage gets pirated. Who woulda thought? You can’t lose money on sales you can never make. "CCTV ran footage of noisy wood-chippers ? what the official Xinhua News Agency called “pulverizers” ? swallowing discs by the hundreds and spewing the remains of movies and music onto sidewalks and parking lots.

Actually if you look closer you will find they were AOL discs :slight_smile:


If it had been in the UK they would have been fined for dumping of trash;) That would have cost them a few million cus of all the little bits everywhere:B Hope all the nasty peeps involved got punctures in the tyres and their engines air box sucked in the sharads of shatter plastic and damaged them so it will of cost them in more than one way:g Just another country wanting to get themselves apraised by the press:r Greets The Diplomat:S


China ships 100 zillion pirate CDs/DVDs I’m sure this is a very small %
