piracy 2Today, we went to our local tianguis, the traveling market that comes near our neighborhood every Monday. You can buy all sorts of things at a tianguis: clothes, toys, fruits and vegetables, and, of course, pirated DVDs and CDs.

When we got there today, we walked past a stand that was selling DVDs. Right away, we both noticed that there were two cops there, looking to buy some movies. It didn’t appear that anyone was worried about being shut down or thrown into jail for selling bootlegged copies of the latest movie titles.
