Actor Roy Billing helps police destroy $21 million worth of counterfeit DVDs.

More than a million pirated DVDs with an estimated street value of $21 million have been destroyed in Sydney.

Actor Roy Billing, who starred in the popular Underbelly drama, was on hand on Tuesday to help police carry out a court order to shred the DVDs carrying copied movie and TV shows.

The discs, believed to be the largest seizure of copyright infringing DVDs in Australia, were discovered in 2013 when police raided the western Sydney home of Mosaic Defredes and uncovered an international syndicate importing, advertising, packaging and selling pirated DVDs.
