Thread: Film Industry Targets Pirates

  1. #1
    The British film industry is to join forces with the government in a new task force to fight UK film pirates, it has been announced. The sale of bootleg videos and DVDs is a growing problem, up 80% in the last year, according to the Federation Against Copyright Theft. That means piracy has cost the UK film industry 400m in the last 12 months, the research said. It was a "direct attack" on the jobs of 50,000 people in the industry, said UK Film Council director Nigel Green, who will chair the Anti-Piracy Taskforce.
    Illegal copies of blockbusters like Tomb Raider 2, Terminator 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean have appeared on sale before their cinema releases.

    it will be a while before anti piracy groups can shift their full attention to bit torrent. By the time that happens, most video games will be too big to download anyway Don't know about movies though

    Ripped DVD's of TR2 being sold on the corner outside of the Premiere party, and they worry about the low bandwith versions on KaZaA ????? Boy, do they have their priorities wrong.

    But BT is one thing that u really can't stop like if u shut down a major site another will just open plus people have their own trackers which can't really be found that easy so BT is here to stay for a while.
