(Left to Right): Alan Godfrey, 66, Christopher Price, 68, Robert Pye, 66, and Stephen Russell, 66, all confessed to the criminal offense of trademark

Two men were closed, and two suspended sentences for selling tens of thousands of forgery.

Alan Godfrey, 66, Christopher Price, 68, Robert Pye, 66, and Stephen Russell, 66, distributed unlicensed LP's 1960s Northern Soul artists.

The Newport Crown Court has heard that some albums have write errors and mismatches.

Pye was closed for 10 months and Russell had eight months.

Godfrey was given a nine-month sentence, and the price was one of eight months, but both were suspended.

Prosecutors said the band's hunting lasted four years.

The British phonographic industry came to the operation after the purchase of the tests.

Prosecutor Alex Greenwood said, "In many cases, identical shots were found at the addresses of each of the defendants, indicating that they supply each other.

"All the PayPal records of the Accused have shown thousands of sales of similarly-described footage over many years."

The analysis of bank accounts in the name of Godfrey showed that he transferred $ 101,518 to Pye, and his HSBC account contained 77,957 pounds of PayPal.

Godfrey's NatWest account also had American credits worth £ 10,905 and PayPal points stood at £ 152,254.

Officials later seized 55,000 records worth about 500,000 pounds.

Godfrey, Bridgend, Russell, Kidderminster, and Pye of Ipswich pleaded guilty to six cases of unauthorized use of the trademark.

The price, also from Kidderminster, pleaded guilty to two points of unauthorized copyright execution and three charges of unauthorized use of the trademark.

The following year, a criminal offense will be held.
