ELSPA CLAMPS DOWN ON GAME PIRACY
Copyright 2005 ELSPA

[ February 28th 2005 ]

ELSPA today celebrates the success of its ongoing clampdown on computer and video game piracy in the UK, with the release of its 2004 raid figures. ELSPA's dedicated anti-piracy unit has achieved consistently good results ever since it was founded in 1994, conducting on average 10 raids per week. In 2004, a total of 538 raids were carried out across the country, resulting in the removal of well over 4 million worth of copied games from the marketplace and the successful prosecution of 67 software counterfeiters

Roger Bennett, director general of ELSPA commented: "We have seen an encouraging set of results from the past few years which reflect the outstanding efforts of our tireless anti-piracy team and its strong relationships with Trading Standards, Police and other industry trade bodies. While this is just the tip of the iceberg, we are committed to increasing the pressure on criminal activity that undermines the performance of not only our members, but of the industry as a whole."

John Hillier, manager of ELSPA's Anti-Piracy Unit said: "We are stepping up our investigations into Internet piracy for 2005, building relationships with service providers and maintaining close observations on potentially illegal trading. Whilst we are fully aware of the potential risks to the industry from this kind of piracy, as it currently stands the main threat on the streets today remains the more 'traditional' dealer in physical products."
