More than 80,000 pirate DVDs were shredded on Castle Street this morning, as part of an amnesty to raise awareness of film piracy. Trading standards officers from the council took along the massive haul of pirated discs, which they had collected through raids in the Capital since Christmas. And members of the public were bringing along their own pirate DVDs to put in the shredder, with genuine copies of films such as King Kong being given out to those who came along. [More]
