US authorities have confirmed that three men behind the largest piracy ring yet found have been indicted.

Ye Teng Wen, Hao He and Yaobin Zhai, all from California, are accused of pirating 325,000 copyrighted CDs and other software.

US Attorney Kevin Ryan said: "The allegations of massive piracy of music and software reflect the potential loss of millions of dollars to the artists and businesses which legitimately own the copyrights on these works.

"These individuals are charged with affixing counterfeit labels on CDs to create the appearance of legitimacy, including the FBI Anti-Piracy Warning that stated 'Unauthorized copying is punishable under Federal law'."
