35 arrested for piracy in Italy A total of 35 people have been arrested in an Italian town as part of a major crackdown on a criminal gang that was producing and selling counterfeit goods. Those arrested in the Italian town of Pescara included a policeman and a court official. The official from the Civil Court of Pescara and the policeman played a major role in the pirate gang, as did a clerk working for the Ministry of the Interior.
The move, dubbed "Operation Crack", was coordinated by Aldo Aceto, the public prosecutor from Pescara, and was carried out by local police assisted by music, movie and business software anti-piracy experts as well as SIAE, the authors' collecting society anti-piracy team.

More than 12 CD burning facilities were found and dismantled in and around Pescara and police officers also seized more than 400,000 in cash.
