Piracy destroying the industry!

I have the television on while doing my serious business of being online, and just saw this headline in a movie:

"Fashion Industry Destroyed by Pirates"!

The storyline is really, truly about people who "pirate" the latest fashions and sell the cheap knockoffs!

Made me laugh out loud (and scare the cat).

Edited to add: The movie is a William Powell/Bette Davis "musical" called "Fashions of 1934"...

I guess piracy never goes out of fashion!

Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

My non-pirated socks always end up as singles. I'll definitely try this new brand of pirate socks as well.
