Dutch Police Raid Illegal DVD Plant


Dutch police have raided an illegal DVD manufacturing plant capable of making 900 copies of movies an hour, anti-piracy officials said on Thursday.

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, which represents the recording industry, said that Dutch police were dismantling the disc factory in Velddriel, southeast of Amsterdam, after raiding it on Tuesday.

The IFPI said the DVD press, which was making pirated copies of movies such as "Die Hard 4.0", "Ocean's Thirteen" and "Evan Almighty", might have come from a legitimate plant that had been declared bankrupt.

Officers also found discs that formed part of an order for thousands of pirate CDs featuring a compilation of chart music.

Based on figures earlier this year from research group Screen Digest, the Netherlands was estimated to have lost $129 million from piracy in 2005, well below the $1.5 billion and $1 billion potential losses for France and the UK respectively.

Dutch anti-piracy group Brein said discs from the Velddriel plant were being sold in schools, offices, bars and on the street.
