Mailing vhs tapes?
For Christmas you need to buy your friend a DVDR, which will save them on postage and you on converting low res vhs into barely watchable rips.
Besides it's the least you can do.
Isn't it more illegal to be mailing vhs tapes than it is to download from the internet?
That's pirated material physically crossing state lines and international borders.
Multiple felonies, and then you have to deal with Interpol.
