Memory Stick bootleggers caught

You've probably seen them before: suspiciously cheap Memory Sticks on eBay that are "too good to be true." Some of you may have even purchased one, only to find out that they simply don't work. It looks like a bootlegger was recently arrested: a Kyoto University student was caught with about twenty fake Memory Sticks in his home. He sold the Memory Sticks throughout Japan and overseas, and is believed to have sold at least 400 fraudulent sticks.

The bootlegger now faces fines as high as 2.5 million yen (about $25,000 US).
