Warsaw police today successfully busted a gang of more than 100 hackers who were responsible for selling pirated music, movies and games. The pirates used academic computers and networks around the world to store their goods.
"They broke into the biggest systems they could find and set up 'warehouses' to store pirated games, films and music," police spokeswoman Agata Salatka said of one of Poland's biggest piracy-related busts.
"They distributed the goods through the Internet, and also supplied bazaars with the latest hits -- even before their official premieres," she added.
Polish police have detained the leaders of the piracy ring, but denied to comment on exactly how many people had actually been arrested.
