Police Shut Down Movie Web Site

A Web site that let users exchange pirated moves has been shut down and its four creators have been arrested, Spanish police said Thursday.

The association representing Spain's recording industry estimated that the site, cvcdgo.com, attracted 11.2 million visitors between its February 2004 launch and May this year. That gave its owners an opportunity to raise "substantial" sums in advertising revenue, police said.

The site featured illegal copies of newly released movies, some of them illicitly recorded in movie theaters.

Earlier this year, the Spanish government approved a plan aimed at curbing the country's thriving trade in bootleg video and music recordings, setting up a special police unit.
