Sniffing out the CD pirates

Sniffing out the CD pirates

Mexico has employed a new weapon in its war against pirate DVDs - it's using specially trained dogs to root them out. "Lucky" and "Flo," two female three-year-old black labradors from Ireland - have been specially trained by the California-based Motion Picture Association to detect the polycarbonate and special solvent
used in the manufacturing of optical discs. Piracy is a huge problem in
Mexico and copyright theft cost an estimated 483 million U.S. dollars in lost
revenue last year alone. Annual world-wide losses are put at six billion
USD.
