Pirated Malayalam films available free to view on the web in spite of arrests
By A Staff Reporter
LONDON: Recent reports carried out by major newspapers in India stated that the arrests of certain individuals related to piracy has helped the industry to return back to profits. Reports said that a firm bought the DVD and CD rights for a Malayalam movie and it sold hundreds of copies on the first day of the release after actions taken by the anti piracy cell.
However, just a search on the Internet will prove that the piracy business is still going in all its flow without any interruption after all the arrests. Most of the Malayalam films are now freely available on the Internet. Just a search on You Tube will show you that Malayalam films like 22 Female Kottayam, Grandmaster, Mallu Singh and others. All this begs the question whether the people who bought the rights of these films were able to make any profits as it is on the Internet.
Reports say that its a Prem Kumar from London who is behind uploading films on the Internet. Prem Kumar is allegedly to have received the pirated copies of the film from a Bangalore native named Rekha. The anti piracy cell believes that if it is able to arrest Prem Kumar from London then they will get vital clues as he is allegedly the main person behind uploading the film on the Internet.
Prem is on the run as it was reported that even Interpol was trying to get him. But films are still being uploaded on the Internet. Is this Prem such a clever person to continue uploading films in spite of him being on the run!
The purpose of this article is to bring this to the attention of the anti piracy cell and for them to take action immediately.
