Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) has drawn up some stringent measures to combat piracy that is affecting the film industry on a large scale. Vishal, the President of the TPFC, has been vociferous that he would take strict action on the perpetrators and also made it clear that his Sandakozhi 2 would not be released in the blacklisted theatres that support piracy. True to this, Sandakozhi 2 did not release in some theatres in the state.
And now, the TFPC has come up with some stringent measures. The most important of it is that every theatre should have CCTV cameras installed at the earliest and the last deadline would be November 15. Theatres with no CCTVs or with non-functional CCTVs cannot screen new movies, according to the new rules.
#TFPC #producerscouncil brings up 7 strict rules to be brought in action from the coming month to curb down the piracy issues. Looks like a promising one and will definitely have a great impact bringing positive change. @VishalKOfficial @prabhu_sr pic.twitter.com/YVCfBLWCOnâ€” Johnson PRO (@johnsoncinepro) October 24, 2018
Also, the theatres should ensure that their staff are on continuous surveillance during the screening to ensure that unlawful video graphing doesnâ€™t happen. The theatres are also required to check those who walk in to ensure that no video devices are taken into the cinema hall.
A Joint Committee of the Producersâ€™ Council and Theater Owner Association members would be formed to work any issues relating to these rules and regulations.
It may be noted here that Sandokozhi 2 and Vada Chennai were the recent victims of piracy. TFPC Anti Piracy Cell had tweeted:
