Dogged resistance to fake DVDs

The IPKat's friend Sathish Kumar writes to tell him:
"There was a news item that I came across now this morning, "Dogs who sniffed out $6 million piracy racket bag medals". The canine campaign in Malaysia involved two labradors, Lucky and Flo, which were trained to detect chemicals used in making DVD. On Monday, 20th, these two canines received outstanding service awards for finding disks in possession of pirates from the Malaysian Government.

These canines were used in these raids that have led to the arrest of 26 persons and seizure worth of over $ 6 million.

Now for the more interesting news. Irked by the canine power, the pirates have put a bounty of around 100,000 ringgit on Lucky and Flo, who have been provided extra security. The Motion PIctures Association, which arranged for the trial of the two crime busters, is planning to taking them to New York and Canada for an official trip and some leisure".
The IPKat is delighted to hear that Lucky and Flo are being so well looked after. Perhaps they caught a whiff of Lassie. Adds Merpel, what a relief it is to know that there are no plans afoot for training sniffer cats.
