Authorities in Aberdeen, Scotland are making noise about an operation to get knock-offs and pirate goods off the streets. According to this article from The Press and Journal, they claim to have seized £40,000 in fakes.
But the math is a bit off.
The article cites "337 pirated DVDs, worth around £3,370." That would be £10 each. And it mentions another 99 DVDs with a street value of £1,485--or £15 per. Yet senior Aberdeen trading standards officer Del Henderson says these DVDs are "just not worth the £3 or so."
Seems like the police are learning from the street sellers and pumping up the value of the goods they've confiscated. Or maybe some of those DVDs are actually real.
