Canadian police seize pirated vids

MGM’s “The Lover,” MCA/Alliance’s “Raise the Red Lantern” and MCA/Universal’s “Sneakers” were among titles seized by Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers during an authorized raid of a Toronto video store.

The pirated copies originated in Canada, the U.S. and Hong Kong, per the Film/Video Security Office (F/VSO) of the Canadian Motion Picture Distributors Assn.

The RCMP confiscated about 130 suspected pirated videos. The majority were unreleased titles including MCA/U’s “Death Becomes Her,” Fox’s “The Last of the Mohicans” and Columbia/TriStar’s “A League of Their Own.”

F/VSO Ontario Regional Director Max Gordon says the titles likely originated from theater screens in the U.S. and were taped with portable video cameras.
