Ice Cream Man Convicted For Piracy Operation

Monday 6 February 2006/...A man from South Lanarkshire convicted of running a counterfeit piracy operation, will be serving 200 hours community service rather than the fake video games, CDs and DVDs he was selling from his ice cream van.

William Agnew (50) of Quarry Street, Hamilton, was sentenced at Hamilton Sheriff Court after admitting to the trademark offences.

4,000 pirated DVDs, CDs and games on PlayStation, Xbox and PC platforms were seized during the raid on Agnew's business premises in Priestfield Industrial Estate, Blantyre, on 8th May 2003.

It was estimated if the goods were sold as new, they would be worth £100,000.
