The four men and two women arrested have been released on ICAC bail while the investigation continues, the ICAC said.

During the operation, the ICAC seized more than 500 VCD and CD stampers, some tapes used for making stampers, digital camera tapes containing current movies being shown locally, and 25 stampers containing Microsoft software.

Microsoft's Hong Kong office confirmed that the 25 stampers containing Microsoft software were unauthorized and that each of them was valued at US$2 million. "Such a seizure was believed to be the largest of its kind so far," the ICAC said..."
