Dear Devotees,

Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

The GBC Body and the GBC Executive Committee is aware that many pirated devotional products are available on CD and DVD etc.

The Body and its officers does not approve the act of pirating and therefore strongly advises all devotees not to support the piraters by purchasing from them. Buying from piraters severly undermines the ability of the genuine producers to continue to supply the devotee community with new devotional products.

We hope that you will all consciously avoid buying pirated products and support important projects such as the Bhaktivedanta Archives and others who preserve Srila Prabhupada's legacy or are contributing to Srila Prabhupada's mission in various ways.

Your servant,
The GBC Executive Commitee
