$140 million counterfeit software seized!

Hmm ... imagine our local Scout Rangers raiding your friendly neighborhood software/vcd/dvd supplier!
Italian police have swooped on a major counterfeiting ring based in Italy and have nabbed 118 million ($139.8 million) worth of fake software, the Business Software Alliance said.  The crackdown, dubbed 'Operation Mouse' was headed up by Italian cops from the crack Green Beret brigade, aided by both the BSA and the Federation against Music Piracy.
