Singapore jails second DVD pirate

IPRB officers seize over 6,000 discs in raid

HONG KONG — A Singaporean court has jailed a man for 15 months after being convicted of selling illegal DVDs.

Lee Eng Seng was caught in raids by Intellectual Property Rights Branch officers on a shop in the Clementi district in May.

He was charged along with shop owner, Choy Kum Weng.

In June, Choy was given a 39-month sentence — higher because he had links to another shop selling illegal discs.

The IPRB officers seized more than 6,000 pirated discs in the raid.
