A federal grand jury in Atlanta accuses 13 people of counterfeiting and distributing movie DVDs, music CDs and disc packaging.
Federal prosecutors say the indictment handed down Tuesday claims the movies "Gran Torino," "Changeling," "Righteous Kill" and "Dark Knight" were among works copied and sold. It also alleged the defendants pirated the copyrighted recordings of Lil Wayne, Kanye West, T.I. and Robin Thicke, among other artists.
The alleged suppliers of blank discs operated in and around warehouses on Metropolitan Parkway in southwest Atlanta and schemed with the other duplicators and wholesale vendors.
Charges include conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit goods and infringement of copyrighted materials.
