Thrice Warned: Piracy Shy?

Who reads the fine print any more? From the Stamp Out And Abolish Redundancy Department (apologies to Mad Magazine) comes the fine print on the back on an audio CD:


Like the famous multiblade razors, the first warning (1) gets your attention.

FBI Anti Piracy Warning: unauthorized copying is punishable under federal law.

Then, in case you managed to skip number 1, warning number 2 reinforces the peril:

FBI Anti Piracy Warning: Unauthorized copying is punishable under federal law.

And just in case, the FBI shield (3) tells you they mean business.

Pretty effective, eh? Just one question... Can I make an authorized copy?
