That article reminds me of another story I read years ago. It went something like the following:
Two men were up in Alaska and illegally snagging salmon. One of the guys was video taping their experience. The tape jammed so off to the repair shop the camcorder went. After the repairman fixed the problem he played the tape to make sure it was also functioning properly. Next thing you know the game warden was called and the two men were given hefty fines. D'oh!
