Operation Transatlantic

Postby Red Dwarf » Fri Jun 09, 2017 4:58 pm

Once every year in June we see the culmination of a year's investigation by a global law enforcement consortium.

    National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center
    Danish Ministerial Network against IPR Infringements
    National Tax and Customs Administration
    FIOD Belastingdienst (Tax Administration)
    Hong Kong Customs and Excise
    Policija RH MUP
    Department of Justice
    Interpol
    Europol
    City of London Police
    Economie
    Belgium Cybercrime Unit
    Republic of Columbia National Police
    Gendarmerie Nationale
    Centrale Cybernetico Policiale
    Homeland Security Investigations
    Russian authority
    NEC Recisa Recedit (Norway)

In June each year they use their authority to seize web sites that are used for illegal activity, and replace them with their own seizure notice, followed by an advert warning against intellectual property violations.

    Uggs
