Dude I have tonnes of Illegal shit on my Xbox I should hope they'd confiscate it. Now if it was a ps2 or Gamecube
That stuff is like kiddy scisors.
I don't know about the government putting a hard line on hackers, see the thing is there is the law, which is the mandate of the people. And currently the people are kind of divided on the issue of intellectual property, in that it makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. (For example paying for an Education is ridiculous but what if you are a film student?). They are kind of terrified of what would happen if it came to a vote, many countries are already repealing thier IP legislation.
