Piracy is alive and well

Pirated DVDs and MP3s for sale in Cuernavaca

The picture above is from a shopping area in downtown Cuernavaca. There was a whole building with stall after stall covered from floor to ceiling with pirated DVDs and CDs and MP3s. It was a wild thing to walk through, with music blaring from either side.

As I walked out of the building, there was a policeman standing on the sidewalk just next door minding his own business. Obviously this was no concern of his.

I remember when DVDs came out, one of their big things was copy protection. Shyeah, that worked!
