7 Arrested In Major Investigation On Cd-r Piracy In Italy


In one of the largest CD-R music and DVD piracy cases in Naples, the Fiscal Police and the District Attorney's office, assisted by FPM Anti-Piracy Unit,

arrested seven people who were involved in the manufacturing and distribution of counterfeit music CD-Rs, movie DVDs and PC games.

At a press conference, Saturday, the Public Prosecutor, Francesco Soviero and the head of the GdF announced the end of "Operation Jolly Roger" which led to the arrest of the leaders of four criminal organizations involved in the illegal audiovisual piracy in Naples. More than 32 people are under investigation for conspiring to infringe the copyright.Those arrested are Pasquale and Francesco Esposito, Luigi and Giovanni Bergamι, Antonio and Vincenzo Pelliccia, Angelo Frattasio. The investigation started one year ago and led to several seizures of high speed cd-burners (140 in one location, in early 2003) and a total of 3 millions music cds, dvds, videogames, PSX software and inlay cards. Four major printing facilities were also seized. The Judge for the Preliminary Investigation, Aldo Esposito, who signed the arrest warrants said "piracy has now replaced cigarette smuggling in Naples" and it is a "business very attractive for organized crime linked to the local mafia"
