Nevertheless, the powers are substantial and did criminalise possession rather than use.

Although the legislation seemed excessive at the time and still does, it was very effective - dodgy imported video senders disappeared from market stalls and independent shops overnight, and have never reappeared.
I still see these video senders for sale in charity shops very frequently, so really it sounds like they could be breaking the law?although i very much doubt they are aware of the situation?
Oh I've had that for years dear!!
