Berlin (dpa) - A pair of dogs that are claimed to be effective fighters against digital piracy are to be demonstrated in Berlin on Friday by a copyright protection group.

The German Society for the Prosecution of Copyright Theft said Tuesday that the two labradors, Lucky and Flo, have already been deployed on the Czech-German border to ferret out CDs and DVDs hidden in travellers' luggage.

The dogs cannot judge what is legal and what is not, but have been trained to sniff out the odour of the home-recorded optical discs which are mainly used to sell bootleg movies on DVD.

The Society said the dogs would perform for the media.
