Police Confiscate Pirated CDs

September 22, 2006

As part of efforts to crack down on illegally reproduced, or pirated, CDs, the Public Security Ministry last week seized 4,500 of these CDs from vendors in Heredia, north of San José.

Additionally, a truck carrying pirated CDs from Heredia was confiscated, according to a statement from the ministry.

Heredia is a hot spot in Costa Rica for the distribution and sale of pirated movie and music CDs where illegal vendors from all over the country order and collect pirated material, said Public Security Ministry spokeswoman Ingrid Luna.

The Intellectual Property Division of the ministry’s Crime Prevention Department (DEPREC) investigated the pirated CD trade in Heredia at the request of a group of CD company owners, Luna said.
