DVD pirate jailed

No primary category set

A man who sold pirate DVDs on eBay has been jailed for six months and fined £55,000.

Fact director Kieron Sharp said he hoped the fine would send “a strong message to those using auction sites such as eBay that they are not immune from prosecution and further action should they trade in counterfeit goods”.

The counterfeit DVDs were produced in the Far East without any regional coding so that they could be sold worldwide.
