In order to study the "1/8 effect" in different high-Tc oxides from the La-system, muon spin relaxation measurements were applied to the Zn-substituted Bi-2212 system, Bi2Sr2Ca1-xYx(Cu 1-yZny)2O8+δ, around the hole concentration p=1/8 per Cu. It has been revealed that the magnetic correlation between Cu spins is anomalously enhanced in the Zn-substituted samples at p∼1/8 per Cu, proving the existence of the "1/8 effect" in the Bi-2212 system as well.
