The National Police and the Madrid Municipal Police have broken up a gang which distributed pirated CDs and DVD’s. 60,332 discs were recovered in the operation which saw the arrest of four people, and another seven being indicted.

The gang had two properties in the centre of Madrid, one dedicated to the production of the discs and another to their sale where a large display are of items on offer could be seen. Items recovered have been valued at 900,000 €.

Meanwhile the Partido Popular on Friday approved the Ley Sinde, the anti-download law put together by the Socialists. PP spokesperson, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría said that they would ‘act against those who illegally carry out a business with illegal downloads’, leaving to one side the individual who downloads unauthorised material.

The second cabinet meeting of the new Government also suppressed the digital canon, which has been charged on blank media in Spain, and this will be replaced by a compensation system which will come out of the State budgets
