OMB destroys
P80M in pirated disks


The Optical Media Board and the Philippine National Police yesterday destroyed about P80 million worth of pirated movies in the DVDs they had confiscated in three years of operations in Bacolod City and other key cities of Negros Occidental.

The 599 sacks of VCDs, DVD, as well television monitors and DVD players, were destroyed with the use of an asphalt roller behind the “People's House” (Government Center) in Bacolod City supervised by OMB personnel headed by Gerry Zaguirre and Senior Supt. Melchor Coronel, Bacolod City police officer-in-charge.

The amount given by the OMB is not the actual market value of the confiscated items which is P25 to P35 each but the price of the original ones that is P350 for every piece because it is presumed to be the total losses incurred by legitimate sellers. moremoremore
