SIM Lim Square was the site of a police raid last Friday which led to the arrest of 14 people for selling counterfeit mobile phones and pirated movies.
Media players, fake phones and hard disks loaded with pirated movies worth a total of $160,000 were also seized.
Yesterday, the building, the go-to place for cheap computer games, software and gadgets, became the staging point for an awareness event by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (Ipos) to mark World Intellectual Property Day today.
