This has develop into a slightly overused inspiration within the criminal global and, unhelpfully, it's a observe that's frequently bandied approximately with little precision. whilst many legal professionals converse of commoditization, they're liable to achieve this in bleak and dismissive terms—commoditized criminal paintings, it's intoned with deep remorse, is figure from which we will now not generate profits.
