Counterfeiting Microsoft Windows Restore CDs Landed Me in Prison for a Year In 2012, while living in China, longtime e-waste recycler Eric Lundgren manufactured 28,000 PC restore discs to be used in refurbished computers sold in the United States.

The shipment of discs, exact copies of Dell-branded Microsoft Windows CDs, immediately raised suspicions with U.S. Customs officers, beginning a chain of events that would alter Lundgren’s life for the next seven years.

VICE follows the prolific computer refurbisher as he's sentenced to—and released from—federal prison.

Why This ‘Patriotic’ Millionaire Wants to Raise Taxes on the Rich | NowThis ‘We own Congress. We own the White House. We wealthy people are running the country.’ — Here's why self-described Patriotic Millionaire Stephen Prince wants to raise taxes on the rich.

Stephen Prince is a multi-millionaire who made his fortune as the CEO of National Business Products, a company that manufactures plastic gift cards for retailers across the country. Unlike most millionaires, however, he is calling to reform the tax code and make the wealthy pay their fair share. By taxing the rich, Prince believes we can provide Medicare for All, mandate a living wage for workers, and eradicate income inequality. Prince got brutally honest in this video for NowThis explaining that the rich are in charge — in Congress and in the White House — and they are acting in their own interest for their own benefit. Prince believes that raising the minimum wage will increase consumption and we're better off putting money into the hands of people who will spend it in the economy than those at the top who already have plenty of money. Prince also says that the wealthy people in charge do not car if the economy improves just if they're making more money.
