Tangerang Police Seize Thousands of Pirated DVDs from Factory

The Tangerang Police raided on Tuesday a factory located in the Pantai Indah Dadap warehousing complex in Kosambi, Banten, that was suspected of producing pirated DVDs.

Tangerang Police general crimes chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Dedy Supriyadi said the raid was organized following the arrest of a man transporting thousands of pirated DVDs by car on Jl. Perancis nearby.

“The [car carried] some 16,400 pirated DVDs of numerous movies, mostly cartoons and foreign films. The DVDs were being delivered to Glodok [West Jakarta],” Dedy said as reported by kompas.com on Wednesday.

He added that the driver of the car told the police that the pirated DVDs were produced at the Pantai Indah Dadap complex.

“We then immediately raided the production [factory] and confiscated 372 other pirated DVDs. So we’ve seized a total of 16,772 pirated DVDs,” Dedy said.

The owner of the factory will be charged under Law No. 8/2014 on copyright.
