Are Some Flight Crews Smuggling Dvd's?

California Congressman Howard Berman has called for an investigation of reports published recently in the Los Angeles Times that pirated DVDs from Russia are being smuggled into the U.S. by Aeroflot Airlines flight crews. "And, of even greater exigency," Berman wrote in a letter to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, "I am worried about the ease with which these airline employees might be able to smuggle other products, including drugs and weapons." Last week, the Times published an interview with Dmitry Fayerman, who had been sued by Malibu-based Films by Jove for selling pirated DVDs of Russian animated movies for which Jove owned distribution rights. "Everybody who wants DVDs imports from Aeroflot," Fayerman told the newspaper. A private detective for Jove photographed Fayerman picking up two bags from an Aeroflot flight crew member at a hotel located near LAX.
