On March 3, 2011, the Albanian authorities confiscated 2,116 CDs and DVDs during an inspection of 11 outlets in the Albanian capital Tirana.

The discs were confiscated because they did not bear the Artistic Stamp of the Albanian Copyright Office, which is a legal obligation based on the copyright and related rights law.

The inspectors from the Albanian Copyright Office and the General Directorate of Taxation carried out the operation targeting the distributors of unauthorized discs.
