Pirate DVDs of Spider-Man 3 in the UK

This weekend I saw a huge number of people selling pirated DVDs of Spider-Man 3. There must have been about 10 different sellers around Brick Lane, in very prominent positions, and I've heard reports of other sellers wandering the streets in the West End. Where were the police? (Edit - the police have apparently raided and seized premises elsewhere in the UK, so presumably were more interested in following the sellers back to the factory than picking them up)

On a slight aside, I couldn't see any copies of Grindhouse, the new Tarantino/Rodriguez double bill that was released in the US about a month ago, and has been delayed for international release. Is it not even popular enough to interest the Pirates, or has it not been pirated yet because all the prints are still in the US?
