The Macedonian authorities confiscated 4,000 pirate CDs and four computers used for making pirate CDs from seven CD rental clubs/shops during an operation carried out in nine CD rental clubs/shops in the region of Tetovo, western Macedonia, on September 22, 2010.

The authorities also confiscated 63 satellite TV receivers from two of the five cable operators inspected because they did not have the necessary permits.

The operation was organized by the Coordinating Body for Protection of Intellectual Property in Macedonia. Mite Kostov, head of the coordinating body, announced that the infringers would be fined up to EUR 1,800 (USD 2,536) and that charges would be filed against them.
