KUALA TERENGGANU: Two VCD peddlers at a night market in Sura, Dungun became the first people to be detained for selling pirated goods in the state. 

State Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs enforcement division deputy director Shamsuri Hamzah said the two were detained on Thursday and released on police bail. 

“The men, aged 23 and 25, were detained under Section 50A of the Copyright Act 1987 and are the first to be detained in the state,” he said. 

He said the division would continue to detain stubborn traders of pirated VCDs and DVDs. 

“They still persist in selling pirated copies despite our intensive crackdown,” he added. 

Shamsuri said the offenders would be charged under the Copyright Act and Trade Descriptions Act 1972.
