Italy has started to bang up in jail or fine anyone caught distributing copyright material aka songs.

'The Italian parliament yesterday voted in favour of imposing jail sentences of up to three years on anyone caught uploading or downloading unauthorised copyright material to and from the Net.' :-)))

'Those found guilty of the unauthorised distribution of copyright material now face a fine of between €154 and €1032 ($185-1240), a jail sentence of between six months and three years, the confiscation of their hardware and software, and the revelation of their misdeeds in Italy's two national newspapers, La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera.'....for UK read Sun and mirror.

It's to good a chance to miss. You rarely misquote

As the Italian Govt. stated that there could be a fine AND a jail sentence, it was my attempt at an impish swipe on the famous Monopoly quote. I will never be a comedian :-((((

Well i suppose with Napster back on-line doing it the legal way there will be a harsh clampdown all over the place.
