Copyright laws are very different in many countries, thus my concern. How big an issue is music, dat, video disks and tapes - non-original i.e. self recorded and burned?

I get the feeling that they aren't really concerned. Mine were never looked at. I did watch a TV thing on Australian Customs Operations last night, and one traveller brought in about 6 pairs of Imitation Brand name shoes, and a number of Imitation Brand name watches etc, but he was allowed to keep them, as they were not of 'commercial quantity', being the operative wording used. If they had been real, he would have had loads of import duty to pay though.... I'll not be that worried next time I bring a Rolex watch in :)

got all of our stuff, none of it questioned at all, not even the 200+ burned cd's, movies etc do you really think they have the resources to search through every box looking for knocked off movies and albums?
