I don't think their intention is to catch Joe Bob, the blue collar working man who downloads the newest CD, but rather individuals like the one caught in SoCal a few weeks ago. The pirates who are selling pre-loaded harddrives, modded xboxes, pirated software etc, for money. Obviously they'd love to stop those freely distributing ripped CDs etc, but there is nothing noble about selling pirated software.

Selling a modded xbox is not a crime. Im as against piracy as the next person, but I'm an even bigger supporter of our rights. The government does not, can not and shall not ever have the power to tell us we can't sell things that could be used for / result in piracy.
