Staff have been questioned over bootleg copies being circulated, which potentially could lead to contempt of court proceedings.
A spokeswoman for the station said two people had been questioned and denied making any copies available.
She said only those involved in programming or selling the series were entitled to view episodes in a “controlled environment” and the network was not fearful of contempt charges.
“No (we’re not fearful), but whoever is operating a black market should be. Nine continues to abide by the court order,” she said.
Roberta Williams, the former wife of gangland kingpin Carl Williams, said she received nine episodes of the series complete with promotional labels before it was aired interstate.
Ms Williams said she believed the copy she received was not a pirated version and would not on-sell it.
“I don’t want anyone to see Underbelly. I wouldn’t be selling it off,” she said.
“But people are saying to me they’ve got copies. It seems like everyone has them.”
She said she had tried to get a copy from Mick Gatto, who was acquitted of shooting Andrew “Benji” Veniamin in 2004, before she was offered copies from a friend.
Another source within the legal fraternity said the DVDs were “flying around like frisbies” after being offered pirated copies.
An OPP spokeswoman said if it received credible information that breaches of the order were occuring, it would refer it to police for investigation.
Justice Betty King revised the order in which all Victorians – not only Channel 9 – are prohibited from transmitting or exhibiting Underbelly until after an approaching murder trial.
