If the gov't bans a film/book, and you go overseas, buy it and bring it back hidden in your luggage - are you therefore automatically free from prosecutuion because customs failed to find it?
There is now an extra couple of words on the inbound traveler declaration checklist that you fill out coming back in through immigration and quarantine. Where it says Are you carrying any illegal items such as firearms... pornography... you need to either declare it and face the consequences, or illegally import it and then face any consequences should it be found subsequently.
They're revisiting that.
More broadly, though, Eric didn't ask about pornography, he asked about
"banned" films or books. There's no requirement to declare them; if you
want to buy a copy of Ken Park, Baise Moi, The Peaceful Pill, Salo, etc
then go your hardest.
More than 25 RC DVDs will probably get confiscated if they find them,
because the RC category is supposed to be a limitation on commercial
exploitation and 25 DVDs is seen as a saleable quantity. Less than
that, though? Personal use, go nuts.
