  Fake Two Towers DVDs on the internet
Updated 09 December 2002, 17.22
The Two Towers is already being pirated
Fans eager to see The Two Towers are being warned to watch out for fake copies of the film on DVD.

People battling to stop pirate copies say in the last year they found more than 12,000 fake DVDs on an internet auction site in just one year.

Fact File
Where do they get the film from
Someone goes to watch the film and sneaks in a video camera
They use it to record the film straight from the screen
The cassette gets sent to an illegal factory
Loads of copies quickly become available at markets and on the web
And after just five minutes of searching an auction site, CBBC Newsround found two DVD copies of The Two Towers being advertised.

They were on sale for around 20, even though whoever was selling them hadn't got them yet.

Their ad said they "expected" the quality of the movie to be "good - excellent" and added that they expected to have hundreds of copies.

But anyone buying them should be warned that the picture quality and sound is likely to be very bad, and they could get in trouble with the police.
