The Electronic Software Association (ESA) is excited that a substantial piracy operation has been stopped in Mexico City.
The Procuraduria General de la Republica (PGR) and the Agencia Federal de Investigation (AFI), with cooperation from the ESA, raided four pirate game duplication facilities and three storage locations. The raids seized 290 DVD/CD burners, 28,800 illegal games and 900,000 cover inserts for video games. The raid was in the Tepito market of Mexico City. The ESA hopes that this will help reduce video game piracy in Mexico, something that the ESA estimates could constitute 88% of games acquired in Mexico.
