DIGITAL VIDEO Discs (DVDs) containing pirated content, with an estimated value of P65 million, are up for destruction after these were seized in Davao City by law enforcers last week. City Police Director Alexander C. Tagum said they are awaiting instructions on the disposal process and at the same time preparing the criminal complaints against the owners of 20 stalls where these illegal products were being sold. Aside from the DVDs, the police also seized the equipment used in producing these. Mr. Tagum said the items need to be publicly destroyed “because we want to dismiss the doubt that maybe these will be recycled (sold in the city and other areas).” The Optical Media Act of 2003 prohibits the production and sale of pirated DVDs. — Carmelito Q.
