Malaysian police target illegal disc plants The Royal Malaysian Police has teamed up with anti-piracy organizations to raid three illegal optical disc manufacturing plants, recover six replication lines, several hundred infringing stampers and thousands of infringing discs in the last few months. It followed information from a source which led to the first illegal facility in Kluang, Johor province on 20th November. The raid netted three replication lines and more than 6,000 infringing discs.
A review of evidence recovered from the first facility led to the location of a second illegal factory in the same town. The police subsequently raided this optical disc plant and located a further two replication machines with several hundred infringing discs.

The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (MDTCA) then worked with Industry investigators to identify a third related illegal replication plant. When the authorities approached this optical disc plant they discovered the owners attempting to remove a sixth replication line in a heavy goods vehicle.

The investigation is on-going.

Good... nobody has the right to profit off other people's work.
