Provincial Inspection Operations

For the Period covering July 20-22, 2017, Agents conducted routine inspections in various areas of Iloilo City and Negro Ocidental.

A total of fifty business stalls were inspected, which led to the seizure of around 227,600 or more pieces pirated CDs/DVDs of different format and titles, as well as 300 blank discs, 3 DVD players and 1 computer unit, all amounting to an estimated value of PhP79.69-Million.

Local Government Units are advised not to renew the business permits of retailers who mix unauthorized copies of compact discs in their legitimate merchandize. Local law enforcement offices are also requested to report the presence of pirated CDs in their respective jurisdictions, so joint operations may be implemented with the Optical Media Board.
