Piratería en internet
Un CD y un teclado
More than two-hundred computers worldwide have been seized.

The US Justice Department says police in eleven countries have seized some two-hundred computers in an attempt to break up the online piracy of films, music, games and software. This report from Michael Buchanan:

Operation Fast Link, as the investigation is known, targeted senior members of international piracy organisations that distribute films, music and games, often before they are released to the public.

More than two-hundred computers worldwide have been seized, including thirty servers used as storage and distribution centres for the material. One server alone is said to have more than sixty-five-thousand titles on it.

The Attorney-General, John Ashcroft, called the co-ordinated police raids the most far-reaching and aggressive enforcement action ever undertaken against organisations involved in illegal intellectual property piracy.

The film, music and software industries have long been pushing for law enforcement agencies to take a tough stance against internet piracy. They say that without copyright protection and enforcement, the artists and distributors behind the work could lose hundreds of millions of dollars.
