A Web site offering free downloading of more than 2,000 Cantonese and Putonghua pop songs was detected by Customs officers yesterday. Songs by 74 male and female pop singers from Hong Kong, Taiwan and the mainland were available, said the head of the Customs' Copyright Investigation Division, Ho Kai-hoi. 'After clicking on a singer, a list of his or her songs would be shown on the screen,' he said. 'The songs were stored in 13 computer servers, but only one of the servers was located in Hong Kong and the others were in the United States and on the mainland and other countries.' Mr Ho said it was the second time an illegal Web site offering free pirated music had been detected since the Anti-Internet Piracy Taskforce was established at the end of last year. The first site was found in August this year. Officers checked the offices of four Internet content providers in Kwai Chung, Kwun Tong and Causeway Bay and a flat in Chai Wan yesterday morning. They arrested a 24-year-old man at his home in Tsui Wan Estate, Chai Wan. He was freed on bail.
