Well, you're probably getting closer there. If
someone wanted to
prosecute this today, there would be a lot of investigation required.
Who was responsible, when and where were they responsible, what laws
existed then, etc and all to try and put the toothpaste back in the
tube. Why didn't it get investigated when it occurred? Who knows, but
I'd bet there are good reasons why not. You can only get 5 gallons out
of a 5 gallon bucket and once the horse has left the barn, it's to late
once you have a bit more in the bucket.
If you want to prosecute the person who made it, sure, that would be
tricky. Prosecuting someone for selling it in a high street record
shop is far simpler (it's a lesser offence than making it, but it is
still illegal if it is actually an indecent picture of minor).
