MPAA bribing NYC cops to bust bootleg DVD sellers?

The New York Post reports that the NYPD is investigating two cops for taking bribes from the MPAA for busting street-sellers of bootleg DVDs. The MPAA denies everything.

Two NYPD veterans are being investigated by Internal Affairs for allegedly accepting payoffs from the motion-picture industry to arrest vendors of pirated DVDs, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

One officer, a sergeant on the force since 1992, has been transferred from the Staten Island Task Force to the 122nd Precinct pending the internal investigation.
