So, the other day, Emelie and Jonathan were watching their new Alvin and the Chipmunks DVD (our favorite movie, by the way!). The movie was beginning and the FBI warning popped up on the screen. Since they also watch the older episodes of Star Wars, Jonathan thought that any text at the beginning of a movie would be very important to the plot, and asked Emelie to read the warning to him.
She did, and finished with the part, "The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by up to five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000." "
Jonathan sat there for a moment, deep in thought, and then asked, "Well, do you still get to keep the movie?"
