    100 million Russian DVD pirate factory uncovered
    A major DVD piracy operation in the the Kolpino district of St. Petersburg has been uncovered by Russia’s anti-piracy forces and is the country’s largest-ever pirate DVD factory.The site based in a former pipe casting plant was investigated by the Russian Anti-Piracy Organization before the Ministry of Interior’s Economic Crime Department took over the case and was eventually raided by the local Tax Police with the support of RAPO investigators.The investigators found nine DVD lines along with ten DVD stampers and about 60,000 pirated discs. Further investigations found another 140 stampers along with 50 tons of polycarbonate and a computer concealed within the roof space of a workshop.

    The authorities are stating that the equipment installed at the plant was worth about €30 million and that its pressing capacity was 100 million discs a year.RAPO director Konstantin Zemchenkov, commented that cracking down on piracy was an issue for both the international and local content industries.”The film industry, both in terms of our local industry, which has been revitalized over the last two years, and the international industry has to be defended against those who would unscrupulously exploit the creative efforts of others,” he says.
