China nabs pirated discs

Biggest Chinese catch ever for CDs, DVDs

WASHINGTON — Chinese authorities scored their nation’s biggest-ever haul of pirated DVDs and CDs during a raid in Guangzhou province.

Among the 200,000 titles found in the pirates’ booty were “Stuart Little,” “Toy Story 2,” “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Anna and The King,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and “The Mummy.”

The operation was conducted April 19 with the cooperation of the Motion Picture Assn., the international arm of the Motion Picture Assn. of America.

The raid took place as Congress battles over China’s status as a U.S. trade partner. The MPA’s Jack Valenti is a vocal supporter of China’s efforts to promote trade with the U.S. Valenti and the rest of the movie industry hopes to break open the China’s market for U.S. studio product.

“The Chinese government is once more demonstrating that it is redeeming the pledges that it has made to us,” said Valenti.
