    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.
