Stopping or Promoting Piracy?

At one point we think, these Anti Piracy guys are doing their job very well but many times they end up speaking stupid things which ends up in increasing the piracy than stopping it.

Take recent case for example.

Recently Mid Day interviewed Anti Piracy guys of T Series but instead of telling them what they are doing to stop the piracy, he ended up giving information about how piracy guys get pirated copy these days.

There is nothing wrong in letting people know about it but it is stupid when you tell people the source too.

Some of the excerpts from the article:

The anti-piracy cell of T-Series, which holds the copyright for the two films, has intercepted a few links and codes which were sent as SMSes to nearly 900 piracy distributors in India, Nepal and Bangladesh by a key dealer who operates a private website from Malaysia.

After being decoded, the links were found to be paths for downloading Don and Jaan-e-Mann. While this is the path for downloading Jaan-e-Mann, the site for Don is this

The two movies can also be downloaded from M M Satish, president of anti-piracy cell (T-Series Public Performance License), said, “These sites are illegal and have their servers and Internet protocol addresses outside India and the pirated films are uploaded in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore.”

Now, after reading this article, 100s of more people would have downloaded the pirated copy of the movies.

Why these guys have to act foolish?

  2. well,
    after reading this article,i just want to share my feelings…iam a student doing msc medical genetics in london…iam doing part time job in a ware house(which is located in a retail park),since so many months i found so many people from china are selling pirated cds for new these days the community officers and police are arresting then for doing this…they used to take the cd bags from those guys(so many times they used co cry n they used to shout at the police)…everybody knows that it is illegal to cell those cds…but i felt that in onw way itz better than stealing n killing people for money…these people are just doing this for their survival in uk..if these community officers and police do like this…there is a chance for those china guys to become like criminals or shop lifters…rather than doing like this..y they(police )cant give councelling and show or give some oppurtunities to earn money for their survival…

    it seems that police are making criminals…

  3. It happened before with HT and torrents. These guys are interviewing anti-piracy groups and they dont have the slighest idea of what anti-piracy is all about.

  4. eswari : selling pirated cd’s is not the only way to earn a living…those lazy buggers can do something else..there are so many other things one can do to earn money. so you are not justified in saying that at all. those kinda ppl should be put to jail anyway…
