Mensagem: 

Apparently, "bootleg" came from the practice of hiding contraband whisky in the leg of your boots.  A bootleg DVD is a pirate DVD.  If you bootleg something, you make or copy it without authorizations such as a DVD, designer pants, phoney French perfume, etc.  You can bootleg electricity if you don't electrocuate youself in the process.  A bootleg radio station?  Well, why not"
