Pirate computer-software dealers are taking orders online and delivering copies to customers within 24 hours, Customs investigators say. Customs officers arrested the owner of an Internet services company in Ap Lei Chau and the owner of a secretarial services company in Mongkok on Thursday in connection with the operation. Three computer servers, two computers and other hardware were seized along with 76 pirated software programs. The raids were made after Customs placed 10 orders through the Web site, which was allegedly operated by the two men, aged 32 and 41. Ben Leung Lun-cheung, deputy head of the Customs Intellectual Property Investigation Bureau, said the syndicate had been running for about three months. 'We believe they have received at least 300 orders,' he said. Software worth $2,600 was sold for $100. The Web site could be found through Newsgroup - an Internet chat room. Officers said the site was linked to another from which users could place orders. 'The dealers paid a legitimate delivery company to deliver copies by hand within 24 hours,' Mr Leung said. The delivery company was unaware of the activities.
