Eight convicted in Denmark's biggest piracy case

Eight convicted in Denmark's biggest piracy case

Eight men have been convicted by a Danish court of making and selling illegal copies of software, games and music.

Late last week the Copenhagen City Court heard the eight men made the copies abroad and sold them to Danish customers via the Internet. It was Denmark's largest ever piracy case with products worth $585m, according to Reuters.

The copies were made between 1998 and 2002 and included products from Adobe, Macromedia and Microsoft.

Two leaders of the group were sentenced to 12 months and eight months jail. Four others got sentences between two and four months and two were fined. None of them were named and it is not clear whether they will appeal.
