We heard recently that Sony was looking to ship real live Blu-ray Discs
to China despite rampant reports
of piracy, and now that very company is partially responsible for a newly activated BD production facility
. This week, a plant in Shanghai began producing official Blu-ray Discs, and it's all thanks to Shanghai Epic Music, a joint venture of the SMG-controlled Shanghai Synergy Culture and Entertainment Group, the Shanghai Jingwen Investment Company and Sony. The facility's monthly production capacity is half a million discs, and not surprisingly, it'll produce wares for both domestic and overseas markets. Alright guys, now let's keep this place legitimate -- we don't need any KIRFs
pumped out during the night shift.
