Panel suggests amendments to cable TV Act to curb piracy
Advertisement
#1
The committee on piracy constituted by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting today recommended an amendment to the Cable Television Networks Act. The panel suggested a licensing system for cable operators along the lines of the existing registration mechanism to combat piracy.

The Committee said multiplex and theatre operators should be responsible in preventing camcorders being carried inside theatres during the screening of films. This, the Committee held, should be made a pre-requisite for grant of licence to theatre owners.

Besides, content creators, rights holders, distributors, optical disc manufacturers and multiplex operators have been asked to come up with cost-effective solutions for converting traditional theatres in smaller towns into digital theatres and releasing genuine DVDs in bigger cities simultaneously with the launch of the films to curb piracy.

The Committee said internet service providers should be roped in to check internet piracy by asking them to initiate action against errant subscribers. States can enact legislation for preventive detention of audio and video pirates as done in Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. Video pirates may also be brought under the definition of ‘Goondas’ under the Goonda Act.
