The Pennsylvania State Police at New Bloomfield in the heart of Perry County have announced the arrest of two Chinese men from Woodside NY who attempted to sell bootleg DVD's of current films (including The Wedding Crashers) to a field investigator for anti-piracy operations for the Motion Picture Association of America. When arrested the men had 380 DVDs in their possession.

Perry County, a sparsely populated mountainous area of Central Pennsylvania, does not have a motion picture theatre in the entire county (the nearest theatres being about 30 miles away in Harrisburg). In fact, Perry County does not even have a stoplight in the entire county!

The Perry County district attorney's office has had to retain a Mandarin Chinese translator for the two men. The two men each face up to seven years in prison.

That's enlightening. What were they selling these items from? Did they have a storefront or what?

Now if they can only do that in NYC. You walk going down Broadway towards Chinatown and you find asian women selling DVDs from shopping bags at most corners down there.

Based upon an investigation of the MPAA the Harrisburg Pennsylvania police recently raided the flea market at the Harrisburg Farm Show and arrested a vendor with bootleg DVDs of current movies - including Star Wars Episode III (which is not out in video for another month)
