Study: Home piracy "absolutely not a lucrative business"

Gram Ponante
A British man was brought into custody and his belongings seized when police found DVD replication equipment and stacks of pirated DVDs, some of which were pornographic, as well as about $16k in cash in his home.

Robert Bence would peddle pirated content in office parks from the trunk of his car. He told police he had embarked on the business venture after losing his job, but officers found a dismissal letter from a former employer stating Bence's content piracy as the reason for his termination.
