FBI allows name to be used on anti-piracy seals

Building on its existing copyright warning appearing on VHS tapes and Region 1 DVDs, the FBI has announced it is giving DVD and software producers permission to also use its name and logo on DVDs, CDs and other digital media.

The move, says the FBI, aims to deter US consumers from copying or similarly pirating digital media-based products.
 
Announcing the anti-piracy seal scheme, Jana Monroe, the assistant
director with the FBI's cyber-division, said it will act as a warning
for anyone who contemplates the theft of intellectual property.
 
Monroe added that the FBI will actively investigate cyber crimes and
will bring the perpetrators of these criminal acts to justice.
