Submission + - British police raid voucher seller

Gossi writes: "The Register reports a 25-year-old man has been arrested under the Fraud Act. His crime? "Advertising and selling vouchers through auction sites such as eBay and the website". Apparently the bust followed an investigation by global recording industry body IFPI and the BPI. What's interesting about the case is that it's now a criminal offence in the UK under Section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006 to sell music without authorisation, rather than it being a civil matter, and that law is being used to target sellers of vouchers."
