Interlude: Shouldn't that be a code XXX?

Here's an interesting news item:

A Wyomissing man was charged with possessing pornography when taking his computer to Circuit City to install a new DVD drive. How did the technicians find out? They were looking for videos that were already on his hard drive so they could tell if the drive is working, and it just so happens they stumbled onto a child porn video.

Here's the best part: According to court documents, there is "something called code X" that must be installed in order for certain videos to play properly.


(They actually meant codecs.)

Is this true?, can you actually go to jail for having porn in your computer.

Johnny said...

NO WAY!!!
Is this for real?
I mean... were they really that stupid? I find it hard to believe that someone could mistake codecs for something like that... come on... :|

Yep, it is true. Here's the court document:

I'd like to see the actual news story before I believe this. I don't think you can be charged just for "possessing pornography". I think it needs to be something actually illegal, like child porn. Sounds made up to me.

LOL at the Code X thing. I'm not sure how legal of a charge that is though. I don't believe it is illegal as long is it is not underage.
