ZPAV and police raid Polish University For the past few months, Polish authorities have mounted an operation against a file sharing DC++ network situated on the campus of Koszalin University of Technology.
On Wednesday, police officers assisted by ZPAV, the Polish branch of the IFPI and MPAA, raided the campus, and seized one main PC running the DC++ hub software, 10 laptops and 60 hard drives. According to the police, an astonishing 35,000 GB of pirated movies, music and software was available to download from the network.

The three administrators of the hub, students of the college, were arrested, and more charges seem iminent.

In the last 6 months, ZPAV claims to have caught 267 uploaders, offering a total of 778,000 music tracks for download on file-sharing networks.

Just judging by the 60 hard drives and 10 laptops, that's an average hard drive size of 500 gbs, each filled completely with video content?
