Inspection Operations Metro Manila
Tuesday, May 17, 2016
On April 26, 2016, OMB Agents were directed to conduct routine inspections of business stalls at Mandaluyong, Pasig and Marikina, where illegal compact discs abound and openly sold to the public.
Said operations led to the seizure of fifty four (54) sacks of pirated CDs/DVDs of different format and titles, amounting to an estimated value of PhP7.56-Million.
The Optical Media Board intends to revive discussions with Local Government Units, to pave the way for future crafting of local ordinances aimed at limiting to a certain acceptable degree, or totally eradicate, the retail of pirated CDs/DVDs in various Cities and Municipalities, which adversely affects local and national interests.
