Largest Illegal Record Pressing Plant in Europe Discovered by Police
German police have discovered what they believe to be one of the largest illegal record-pressing plants in Europe, NME reports.

After a two-year investigation, a large amount of bootleg vinyl, CDs and DVDs were seized from Aschaffenburg and Hessen, reports Billboard. German authorities are still evaluating the material.

Dr Florian Drucke, head of the German Federal Music Industry Association, commented: "With a market share of about 70 per cent, there is still a high demand for CDs in Germany – this is evident not only in the legitimate business, but unfortunately also on the illegal market.

"The equipment found here demonstrates once again that this is not the work of petty criminals, but of professional organisations whose criminal activities inflict massive damage on artists and the recording industry," he added.
