Three Indicted in Massive U.S. Piracy Scheme

Reuters is reporting that three individuals have been indicted near San Francisco in a massive piracy bust that included 325,000 CD's of software and music.  The three were arrested last week as part of Operation Remaster, an undercover law enforcement operation in Northern California targeting the large-scale suppliers of pirated copyrighted music, software, and movies.  Software included some Symantec Security products and music featured some latin artists.  Discs showed up at one point in a store in Chicago. 

The three even included the FBI anti-piracy warning on the disc labels.
