Computers seized in anti-piracy sweep

Investigators seized 200 computers across the globe to break up online piracy networks that distribute copyrighted music, movies and software, the Justice Department said Thursday.

The sweep, carried out in 27 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries, targeted covert "warez" groups that distribute computer games and other works before they are officially released, the Justice Department said. "We have moved aggressively to strike at the very core of the international online piracy world," Attorney General John Ashcroft said.
