What About Indian ripping American Movies
by Tanvir on Apr 08, 2004 11:28 AM

You guys are blaming Pak for ripping off Indian Money. What Does India do? Every movie thats being churned out has Script written in Hollywood, They are frame to frame copy. Allmost all songs that every one hums in India is a copy of English,Spanish,Pakistani,Arabic,African,French music.
And not for now, its been from 50's. And Indian feel proud in Humming Mehbooba Mehbooba, Chura liya,Ae mere Humsafar,Gazab ka hai din,Maahi wey(Kaante). Piracy is in Blood of Indians. Stop blaming others.

Just don't blame Pakistanis. Indian films are copied
and rented and sold dirt cheap all over the world ,
from the UK to the US and Canada and the West Indies.
Admitted that most movies are not worth a dime and
waste of time , the ones which are classics lose out
in uncalculated loss to the producers and distributors.

Big problem-
by Sunny Chakraborty on Apr 06, 2004 08:36 PM

Well it hurts when copyright is violated or you don't get credit for your work- US is fighting this menace in software and music/movie videos in China, Far East and Latin America. So forget about this problem fixed in Pakistan. Its a open market for all-terrorist, mullas, pirates, thugs, crooks,.... everybody. Just as USA software or moviemakers project earnings based on US/EUROPEAN sales numbers. Bollywood should focus in India sales and work with software makers on encryption technology... and make this work in India first. Then they should worry about piracy elsewhere. Technology [cheap CD/DVD/VCD digital] created this problem. Only technology can fix it! No use crying foul.

Has Ash paid you to write this article!

I can understand her problems, with her films tumbling like unbalanced tenpis in India she must be desparate to look for another source of revenue and also to find a market for her shoddy films. But alas she looks her age now. It seems she is officially 30 but that's her Western-Time-ZOne age and you can guess her Eastern-Time-Zone age! With growing age, fattening body she affects a ridiculous moll doll like quality which is simply put, quite ludicrous!

Your facts are all wrong!
by Rahul Sharma on Apr 06, 2004 02:33 PM

Unfortunately, your reporter is extremely uninformed. I have done quite a bit of research on exactly how the piracy system operates. The piracy of Indian films takes place in Mumbai through film labs (which are entrusted with the prints) and cinemas in smaller towns where projectionists and owners are paid to allow camera copies to be made. The copies are made in Mumbai and then delivered to Dubai and Karachi as well as within India. The masters sell for as little as 1.5-2 lakh rupees. In fact, sometimes, the films are edited down in Mumbai to take into consideration sensitivities across the border. Big name distributors are involved in this piracy, as are our law enforcement authorities who get their cut to look the other way. By the way, there is a law against Indian films exhibition and distribution in addition to a copyright law in Pakistan. Your reporters should write on only those things they know something about.
