Tetsuya Masumura, 39, is suspected of selling, in violation of the Copyright Law, software that deactivates a built-in function in recorders that limits the number of possible copies to 10.

"a built-in function in recorders"
Does this sound good? Wouldn't it be better to say "a built-in function in a recorder" or "a recorder's built-in function"?

    It sounds ok to me. Your second alternative is fine, perhaps better, but I don't like the first. "a built-in function in recorders" is more all-inclusive than the others.
