Law Enforcement Agencies And Movie Studios Unveil New Anti-piracy Warning For DVD, Blu-ray

The National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), has joined together with the FBI and six major American movie studios to launch an updated anti-piracy warning to be displayed on new movie releases.

The anti-piracy warning has already begun appearing in selected DVDs and Blu-rays released earlier this month. The six movie studios, all members of the Motion Picture Association of America, have agreed to utilize the anti-piracy warning.



The joint FBI/HSI anti-piracy warning displays, for the first time, the HSI badge alongside the FBI anti-piracy warning seal and states that, "The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement is investigated by federal law enforcement agencies and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of $250,000." A second screen displays the IPR Center logo with the educational message, "Piracy is not a victimless crime.
