Metro Manila Inspection Operation

On January 17, 2017, OMB Agents implemented Inspection Orders to check business stalls in Bagong Silang, where illegal compact discs are openly sold to the public.

Said operations led to the seizure of forty four (44) sacks of pirated CDs/DVDs of different format and titles, amounting to an estimated value of PhP6.16-Million.

Intensified enforcement against violators of Republic Act No. 9239 (or Optical Media Board of 2003) is one of the supply-reduction schemes in the OMB’s Road Map to possibly limit, if not totally eradicate, the ill effects of pirated compact discs to legitimate industries and government as well.
