THIS WHOLE POST IS IN UPPER CASE. BECAUSE THE TOPIC NEED ‘THE MOST’ ATTENTION. ITS THE PIRACY – WHICH NOTED FILM INDUSTRY REVIEWER TARAN ADARSH OPINES AS “…piracy has made deep inroads and is eating away FILM INDUSTRIE’S  business”  …(http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/trade/business_talk/index.html )

AS A CINEMA LOVER AND FOLLOWER I RUE THE FACT THAT ERNEST EFFORTS PUT-IN BY THE FILM MAKERS GO DOWN THE DRAIN DUE TO THE DISEASE OF PIRACY. FILMS CAN BE GOOD OR BAD…BUT WATCHING PIRATED VERSIONS CAN NEVER BE JUSTIFIED. A GOOD OR BAD MOVIE IS AN INDIVIDUAL’S JUDGEMENT. A GOOD MOVIE FOR ONE CAN BE DUD FOR ANOTHER AND VICE VERSA. BUT WE HAVE TO REALISE  ANY MOVIE MADE (EVEN SMALL FILMS AND so called B GRADE ONES) REQUIRES ENORMOUS INVESTMENT OF TIME, MONEY, EMOTIONS & SKILLS. THEY DESERVE RETURNS. PIRACY DEVOIDS THEM OF THIS.

SO WHAT ARE THE CAUSE OF PIRACY:

  • GREED/EASY MONEY TO VENDORS
  • GREED/LESS MONEY SPEND BY THE VIEWERS
  • GENERAL PUBLIC GETS A KICK-OUT OF BREAKING LAW – STRINGENT PUNISHMENTS REQUIRED
  • POOR PRIORITY TO PIRACY AS AN OFFENCE BY THE LAW ENFORCING AGENCIES. WE HAVE SELDOM SEEN EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE PAYING FOR PIRACY CRIMES.

    piracy is injurious
    piracy is injurious

            THUS THE WHOLE ISSUE COMES TO LAW ENFORCEMENT – SERIOUS LAW ENFORCEMENT. LET EVERY ONE UNDERTSANDS THAT COPYRIGHT IS NOT THE RIGHT TO COPY.I TAKE PRIDE TO HATE PIRACY. WHEN I SEE SOMEONE SELLIG PIRATED CD’S I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO COMPLAIN. WILL IT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. WILL I GET VICTIMISED FOR COMPLAINING. THESE ISSUES DETER ANTI-PIRACY MEASURES.

             IT IS TO THE CREDIT OF FILM INDUSTRY THAT THEY HAVE TAKEN MEASURES TO CHECK THE MENANCE. THE ORIGINAL LABELS ARE AVAILABLE SOON AFTER FILMS’ THEATRICAL RELEASE. THE LABELS FROM MOSER-BAER ARE DAMN WITH-IN RANGE. EVEN BIG BANNERS LIKE  YR FILMS HAS THERE LABELS ON SHELF AT AFFORDABLE RANGE. SO WHY THE HELL THIS PIRACY – IT IS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.

HOW PEOPLE CAN REALISE THAT THEY SHOULD SHUN PIRACY

  • STRICT QUICK PUNISHMENTS  – MONETARY AND CONVICTION, FOR SELLING PIRATED CD’S
  • PIRATED DISCS ARE OFTEN POOR QUALITY VERSIONS. THEY DAMAGE THE dvd’S ND OTHER INSTRUMENTS. THUS COST OF WATCHING PIRATED MOVIE IS VERY HIGH, ACTUALLY.
  • REGULAR RAIDS AND EQUIPMENT SEIZURES WITH FULL PUBLICITY. PERHAPS AT EACH LOCAL LEVEL TEAMS CAN BE NOMINATED AND EMPOWERED TO RAID THE OUTLETS AND POLICE BOUND TO HELP THEM.
  • EDUCATING PUBLIC THAT THESE REVENUES FROM PIRATED VERSIONS GOES LONG WAY IN FUNDING THE TERROR ACTIVITIES AGAINST THE COUNTRY 
  • REGULAR MEDIA SUPPORT IN HIGHLIGHTING THE MENACE OF PIRACY AS A SOCIAL MALAISE. MEDIA IS ALSO DUTY BOUND AS IT MAJORLY SURVIVES ON THE BOLLYWOOD CONTENT FOR GLAMOUR.

LOVE CINEMA. LOVE DREAMS. HATE PIRACY!!!
