Pirated CDs / VCDs / DVDs - Road Blocks in Malaysia


THis ruling has Already started since last month.

To all those CDs lover pls beware!


do not keep any pirated or burned CDs, DVDs, or VCDs in your car.
Police and Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs Ministry's enforcement division in Malaysia have started the operation to search and fine anyone who keep pirated disc inside their car especially through road block at all main road and expressways.
If any pirated or burned disc found inside your car will be charged RM400 per disc. Example 30 discs found means the fine will be RM12,000.

This is real. Another friend of mine from Seagate, today during lunch time, 5 CD x RM400 = RM2,000
One of the Plexus colleague brother-in-law caught by Police due to pirated CD in the car on the way to town for lunch with his friend in the afternoon. One CD fined RM400.

However i heard from the radio news that they will fine consumers five times of the original CD price.

So beware!
Please disseminate this to all your friends who are driving in Malaysia .
