15 months in jail for porn and videogames

A Bristol man has won himself fifteen months of prison for a stockpile of pirated videogames, movies and delicious pornography. 51-year-old Gary Boulter of Thornbury was found guilty of running a copying "factory" in his home.

Trading standards received a tip-off about Boulter's activities, and he has admitted to possessing illegal media worth more than £50,000 in total. He has been found guilty of 23 offenses committed from a room in his house that was given over to the copying of the material, which he then sold to his friends. 

Boulter claims that the copying of games and movies was a "hobby" and that he never charged for his dodgy discs. With 2,300 game and film copies in his house, along with 500 blank DVD-Rs, that's quite the expensive non-profit hobby. Should have stuck to Warhammer

In other news, if anybody wants some cheap copies of Spunks-A-Lordy II: The Slaggiest Muff Festival in Croydon, I can sort you out.
