2 sentenced to prison for counterfeiting CDs, DVDs

ATLANTA -- Two metro Atlanta men have been sentenced on charges of counterfeiting DVDs and CDs in what prosecutors call one of the biggest pirating schemes in the region.

According to information presented in court, 34-year-old Charles Ndhlovu of Fairburn was sentenced to more than four years in prison on charges of copyright infringement and trafficking in counterfeit labels for the devices.

Scott Ahn, 42, of Lawrenceville was sentenced to 19 months in prison on charges that he supplied Ndhlovu with raw materials such as blank CDs and burners.

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the two men were involved in mass producing hundreds of thousands of counterfeit music CDs and movie DVDs in a pirating scheme that was the largest in the Southeast.

The two were among 13 charged by a federal grand jury in May 2009.
