Internet Pirates Targeted

The Justice Department says it has seized at least 50 million dollars worth of stolen movies, games and software programs. It is a part of an eleven-nation crackdown on Internet piracy organizations.

Agents staged 90 raids around the world starting Wednesday. Four people have been arrested. Hundreds of computers have been seized. The government says it shut down at least eight major online distribution servers used for pirated works.

The crackdown involved help from authorities in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Portugal and Great Britain.
