I went to the local flea market about a month ago and there were 3 lady in 1 big booth with boxes everywhere of burned cds. They sold them for 3 each and 2 for 5. They were making a killing everybody was buying. The question is will it be risky to run a business like this?
They have been running it for years apperantly and the profits are staggering.
We live in a small city so I dont know what do you all think about this

Please be a responsible citizen and report them to local police.
What they are doing is highly illegal. Fraud is fraud. By not reporting them you are helping to hurt the local retailers selling their music.

If responsible and honest people dont stand up for whats right,then the whole world will be nothing but a bunch of con artists and scammers.
Which we may not be far from that now....

DO NOT even think about doing this, it is highly illegal.

Regardless of how much money you can earn.

That is about the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Do you think people are not responsible if they don't go run to the cops about everything they see?

Further more in my town it is done everywhere even the police buy them. You have absolutely no idea what is right or wrong let me tell you some thing.
Do you think it is right to have to pay 20.00 for a small disc that cost 2 cents because that is what you do every time you ' Do the right thing' Give more money to the millionaires. I say more power to them sell them everywhere.

Do you want to know why these people can go to the flea market and do this?
Because the police don't give a shit as long as idiots are not harassing them about it they don't care.
You want to know something else you are not hurting any local retailers. That is the kind of statement that I would expect to come next here from a misinformed person.
Here is a list of movie sales as I assume they were selling dvds as well

Top grossing movies for 2008 in the USA

Please note that these are the top grossing films that were first released in 2008; because they may have made most of their income in a later year, they are probably not the top grossing films for calendar year 2008.
Gross Movie
$530,723,626 The Dark Knight (2008)
$318,298,180 Iron Man (2008)
$317,011,114 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
$227,946,274 Hancock (2008)
$223,749,872 WALL·E (2008)
$215,395,021 Kung Fu Panda (2008)
$169,937,394 Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008)
$157,583,232 Quantum of Solace (2008)
$154,529,187 Horton Hears a Who! (2008)
$152,637,269 Sex and the City (2008)

YEAH I CAN SEE HOW THOSE PEOPLE ARE PUTTING THEM OUT OF BUSINESS JUST KILLING THE INDUSTRY.
NOW LETS LOOK AT ALBUMS(THIS IS THE NUMBER OF ALBUMS SOLD NOT THE
MONEY THEY MADE LIKE ABOVE SO IF YOU WANT TO FIGURE THAT OUT MULTIPLY THESE NUMBERS BY 12-15 YOU PICK
Coldplay Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends 2763280
Jack Johnson Sleep Through The Static 2432560
Duffy Rockferry 2338960
Madonna Hard Candy 2271360
Michael Jackson Thriller (25th Anniversary Reissue) 2117440
Mariah Carey E=MC2 1708720
Lil Wayne Tha Carter III 1684800
Usher Here I Stand 1289600
Soundtrack Juno 1091260
R.E.M. Accelerate 1033760
Lenny Kravitz It s Time For A Love Revolution 999440
Neil Diamond Home Before Dark 800800
Adele 19 720720
Janet Jackson Discipline 669760
Soundtrack Step Up 2: The Streets 657280
Disturbed Indestructible 643760
Rick Ross Trilla 637520
Portishead Third 614640
Panic! At The Disco Pretty.Odd.568880
Simple Plan Simple Plan 564720
Sheryl Crow Detours 561600

WELL NOW I AM CONVINCED THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS GOING UNDER TOO.
LET ME POINT OUT THAT THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ITUNES ECT SO YOU CAN PROBABLY ADD ANOTHER MILLION TO EVERY ONE OF THESE.

To wrap this up no one is being hurt by some guy at the flea market trying to make a few extra bucks to help his family get by in this world nor does anyone care. To say that you should go report a person for doing this is the most uneducated 6th grade post I have seen in years.

i dont beleive the artist or movie maker would like that someone bootleging there stuff. alot of hard work and money put in makeing it. just ask the makers of name brand clothing like purses to see if they dont sue you. would you like someone makeing copys to resell of your stuff you like doing? knowing you wont see a penny of it. please note that copies are for your back up only of original purchase not to resell .
