A 16-year-old student was questioned after his house in Morecambe,
Lancashire, in England, was searched in a joint Morecombe Police and
Lancashire Trading Standards Department raid and a library containing 1,000
master discs - "the repertoire of material available for making counterfeit
copies of music CDs" - was found.
Two computers were confiscated for forensic examination and, "It is also
thought that the boy's school email system was being used to assist with the
selling of his counterfeit goods," said the trading department, adding that
it has yet to decide if he'll face charges under the Copyright, Designs &
Patents Act (1988), the Trade Marks Act (1994) and the Trade Descriptions
