I imagine what happened is that home cassette recorder became cheap enough to be universally available. And the same is likely to happen with CD recording machines - by a few months time they'll be standard in entry -level PCs. Or it'll be some other equivalent with MP3 or whatever.

But I love the way terms like PIRACY and BOOTLEGGER have come into vogue. "Yo Ho Ho and a CDROM"

For some reason I am reminded of the parrot who was sacked from a production of Treasure Island in England this winter. Instead of saying "Pieces of Eight" the bird insisted on squawking "Piss Off Mate".
