Software pirates in Canada

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and it’s counterpart in Canada, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada (ESAC) dished out props and praise for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Mounties!) for a July 13 raid on stores selling pirated software at the Pacific Mall in Markham, Ontario. They made one arrest, and seized thousands of pieces of software.

According to the ESA statement, Pacific Mall is no stranger to counterfeit goodies, as the Mounties had to lay down some smack on stores there in April of 2005.
