Record seizure of illegal copying equipment in Rome
Rome, 19th July 2007
Police in Rome have secured a record seizure of illegal CD and DVD reproduction equipment. The Anti-Piracy Unit of the city’s police force was assisted by experts from the music, film and software federations in seizing 113 burners, the largest haul of such illegal apparatus in its history.
The illegal copying facility was found in a house in Rome’s Ponte di Nona district during Operation Spring Master, a four month investigation into street vendors selling counterfeit CDs and DVDs across the city. The leader of the organisation running the plant was arrested to help the police with their enquiries.For further information contact:
