Convicted pirate ordered to pay up

September 2010

Record labels

A judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court has ordered a convicted music pirate to pay record label trade body the BPI £170,000.  Farrah Nissa was jailed for copyright crimes in 2008 for his role in running a counterfeit CD operation which sold an estimated 1.2 million bootleg discs. The order was made under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. Nissa’s partner in crime had already been ordered to pay £70,000 following similar proceedings last year. The money will be shared out between the BPI’s members.
