In their widest crackdown on online piracy to date, federal authorities on Monday shut down some 150 websites offering counterfeit goods, including DVDs. Among the sites that were closed were www.dvdshopdvd.com and www.dvdsetonline. Those two sites and The Others now sport a notice headed by the seals of the Department of Justice, The National Intellectual Property Rights Center and Homeland Security. In a statement, Attorney General Eric Holder said, "Today we have sent a clear message that the Department will remain ever vigilant in protecting the public's economic welfare and public safety through robust intellectual property enforcement."
