Dec 22 2009 - 14:38

On November 5, 2009, three Bulgarian citizens were arrested in Moscow, charged with copyright infringement and distribution of pirated discs, and face up to six years in prison if convicted.

Kostadin Kostov, Krasimir Velchev, and Simeon Borisov managed the Millenium 2001 firm, which operated a CD production plant at Zelenograd, near Moscow, where they organized the large-scale production and distribution of pirated discs.

Bulgaria may start a piracy case parallel to Moscow’s investigation.
