I just came back from holliday’s in Malaysia, and this is going on over there. The Malaysian goverment doesnt give a shit about ellegal software,vcd and dvd, they just dont want pornographic vcd on the market. And what they mean with legally recognized shopping lots is any shop in a shopping center So you still can buy a lot of illegal stuf over there, I didnt even find legal software over there. I have this information from a local policeman
