‘Taxi for film pirates!’

The Federation Against Copyright Theft exhibited for the first time at the Police Federation Conference in Bournemouth last week. The FACT stand attracted large numbers of visitors making enquiries about using FACT expertise to assist in the fight against film piracy.

The FACT branded London taxi also made an appearance at the conference promoting the Film Piracy Hotline (0845 60 34567) and the FACT website.

FACT ran a very popular competition on the stand to win a prize of two tickets to the UK Premiere of ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean – Dead Man’s Chest’ which was won by Sergeant D Stone from Suffolk Police. The tickets were kindly donated by Buena Vista.
