Warner Bros. sues company who sold DVDs instead of destroying them

Posted on

Warner Bros. Home Video has brought a $10 million lawsuit against IWMB, Inc., a California-based company it had contracted to destroy two million surplus DVDs, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The suit alleges that IWMB did not destroy the merchandise, but instead sold the surplus DVDs and Blu-Ray discs to a third party, who sold them at significantly discounted prices. It is estimated that 750,000 of the stolen discs were sold, and 250,000 remain unaccounted for.
