Dogs trained to detect fake DVD discs

Posted on Monday, May 08 2006 @ 05:14:31 CEST by

Netscape reports two black Labradors have become world's first dogs to be trained to search for counterfeit DVDs:
The dogs, Lucky and Flo, have been trained to detect discs to help combat DVD piracy, the Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact) said.

Fact has joined forces with express delivery company FedEx and HM Revenue & Customs to crack down on DVD piracy. As part of a project promoted by the Motion Picture Association, Fact organised for the dogs to undergo training with a world expert in the field.

A Fact spokesman said the dogs had been taught to identify DVDs that might be located in boxes, envelopes or other packaging, as well as discs concealed amongst other goods which would them be sold illegally in the UK.
Pretty amazing. You can read more over here.
