KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- The Enforcement Division of the Malaysian Ministry of Domestic Trade seized six illegal Megatouch copies at the Holiday Planet Family Amusement Center here. The games were confiscated during a raid on May 3 and turned over to legal authorities as evidence, according to AMI Entertainment Network Inc., which manufactures Megatouch videogames.

Bob Fay, AMI's director of government relations, began working with Malaysian authorities three years ago as part of an international effort to protect the company's intellectual property. The trade ministry seized 18 Megatouch copies last fall at five shopping malls in Johor Bahru, a provincial capital in the south of the country. This month's bust is the sixth in Malaysia. An investigation looking into the source of the pirated software continues, Fay said.

Malaysia is among the more than 30 countries in which AMI's interactive amusement and music products are deployed by professional vending companies.
