Sentence Looms For DVD Pushers

If you thought no-one is buying DVD disks these days, it seems you are quite wrong. Sentences will be handed down in a Parramatta court on June 30 to a man and woman on charges relating to the possession and sale of more than a million high-quality counterfeit DVDs.

Mosaic Defredes and his accomplice Allison Daniel will appear at the Downing Centre following the seizure of 1.2 million DVDs in 2013 which, if sold, would have equated to approximately $21 million.

Investigators from the Australian Screen Association (ASA) supported detectives from Quakers Hill police who found that Defredes had also sold more than 65,000 DVDs totalling more than $1.6 million in sales on eBay.

Defredes and Daniel pleaded guilty to two piracy counts. Penalties under the Commonwealth Copyright Act carry a maximum of five years’ imprisonment and/or a fine of $90,000 for each offence.
