Metro Manila Inspection Operations

On February 03, 2017 OMB Agents implemented Inspection Orders to check business stalls in the cities of Las Piñas and Pasay, where illegal compact discs are openly sold to the public.

Said operations led to the seizure of thirty eight (38) sacks of pirated CDs/DVDs of different format and titles, amounting to an estimated value of PhP5.32-Million.

Intensified enforcement against violators of Republic Act No. 9239 (or the Optical Media Board Act of 2003) is one of the supply-reduction schemes in the OMB’s Road Map to possibly limit, if not totally eradicate the ill effects of pirated compact discs to legitimate industries and the government as well.
