Fast (Federation Against Software Theft) has netted its first Internet pirate under Operation Interactive, a new scheme designed to curb piracy on the net. Through Operation Interactive, Fast has been monitoring web sites worldwide for the past couple of months. "It's concerned with illegal activity on the Internet, particularly the sale or movement of infringing software," said an undercover investigator for the organisation. "These individuals or organisations are using the net in a way it wasn't designed for." As a result of the ongoing investigation a Birmingham man, who was not named for legal reasons, was arrested last week. "We picked up on a guy trading in counterfeit gold CD-ROMs containing just about any software you could think of," said Robin Lawrence, head of the digital crime unit at Fast. An illegal software library worth around #0.5 million was uncovered as well as other pirating equipment.
