Customs seize photocopied books
(04-08 18:56)

Customs officers have seized more than 500 full-color photocopied English story books from a children's learning institute.
They said the materials were used to lure parents to join its courses by selling them 60 percent cheaper than the original price.
The Divisional Commander of Customs' Intellectual Property Technology Crime Investigation Division, Guy Fong, said officers started their investigation after receiving a complaint from the copyright holder.
Four branches of the company in Tsuen Wan, Shatin, Kowloon Tong and North Point were raided in the operation and six people, including three directors, were arrested. --RTHK
