Pirates busted in City of Industry

Raid finds $30 mil in allegedly illegal DVDs

The MPAA, RIAA and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. have conducted a raid on a City of Industry replicating facility, netting $30 million worth of alleged illegal stampers and bootleg DVDs.

Orgs received a tip that New Century Media Corp. was producing illegal copies of movie and music discs, and passed info onto the Sheriff’s Dept., which conducted the raid Wednesday.

No CDs were found, but the Sheriff’s Dept.’s High Tech Task Force, which investigates computer crime, reports it found numerous allegedly illegal DVDs as well as the equipment to make more on a mass scale.

New Century Media was closed for the day, but so far no arrests have been made.

A rep for the company said she couldn’t discuss details of the case, but said, “As far as I know we haven’t done anything wrong.”

Motion Picture Assn. of America and Recording Industry Assn. of America both regularly work with law enforcement authorities to collect and provide evidence for antipiracy arrests and prosecutions.
