The fee and tax increases are the major

The General Assembly will consider

ultimately, they�ll choose legitimate

slash DVD prices in China, you

have to understand the sophistication

bought this pirated copy of the new

The piracy rate is around 93%, by which
we mean that the pirates have

about 93% of the marketplace.�






Legal DVDs are on the shelves at this

some, $2 might NOT be cheap enough.
So Hollywood�s challenge?

charges carry only a fine.


But one additional charge could

GRAPHIC=NFL Nick Saban has denied for weeks


that he had an interest in the vacant
Alabama coaching job, saying he was
comfortable as the Miami Dolphins'
skipper.

But over the last few days,
Saban changed his mind.

2002 The reason is apparently two-fold
:00 - and concerns money and winning.

Saban won a national championship
at LSU, but was just 15-and-17 with the
Dolphins.

This just completed season was
his first losing season in 13 years as
a head coach at any level.

As for the money - he was making
$4 and a half million a season and
living on the beach.

In Tuscaloosa, he won't get a
beach, but he will make a lot of cash -
$32 million over 8 years - and it's all
guaranteed.

He's expected to be formally introduced
today.

Elephants at the Berlin Zoo were
fed leftover Christmas trees that
traders were not able to sell.

Zookeepers say the animals usually
eat leaves during the winter, so the
trees were a nice change of pace.

But not everyone can bring their old
Christmas trees to the zoo.

It only accepts trees only from
traders to make sure they're not
contaminated with chemicals.
