Two caught recording 'Mummy' in Russia

Police anti-piracy effort also focused on retail outlets

MOSCOW -- A piracy raid at Moscow cinemas during the opening weekend of "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" resulted in the arrests of two people who were copying the movie at one of the cinemas. Both now face criminal charges.

The raid comes as part of Moscow police's crackdown on copyright violators.

A similar raid took place during the premiere weekend of "Wanted" in July. Under the same anti-piracy scheme, 30 retail outlets suspected of selling illegitimate DVDs were inspected last week.
