The Price of Piracy

"Psst, want to buy DVDs?" You turn around and see an unkempt looking youth-bright blond hair, faded tee and jeans with cigarettes in mouth. "Latest one also got, boss, "he coaxes further. You move closer to his shop and find the latest movie DVDs and music CDs. Take your pick. They're dirt-cheap. "Buy five, I give you one for free, " he tempts more. What are you going to do?

One that sees you shortchanging yourself, the economy and the industry. Cheap prices? They're more expensive than you think!
