Three charged in massive US music, software piracy scheme


A federal grand jury indicted three men on charges of music and software piracy in what the recording industry says is the largest CD manufacturing seizure in the United States, authorities said.

The US Attorney's Office in San Francisco said the indicted defendants were charged with infringing the US copyrights of more than 325,000 CDs containing music and software.

"The allegations of massive piracy of music and software reflect the potential loss of millions of dollars to the artists and businesses who legitimately own the copyrights on these works," US Attorney Kevin Ryan said. Three charged in massive US music, software piracy scheme - Yahoo! News
