Bringing cost-effective programs to the theatre owner
The motion picture industry, including producers, distributors, theatres, video stores and pay-per-view operators have lost billions of dollars as a result of film piracy. Over ninety percent of initially released pirated films are a result of individuals camcording in movie theatres. These individuals manage to copy every major film within days of its release and many times even before the film's release date. They then sell their "master recordings" to illicit "source labs" where they are illegally duplicated, packaged and prepared for sale on the black market and distributed to bootleg "dealers" across the country and overseas. In many cases, illegal copies of blockbuster features are available for sale on street corners and on the internet withinhours of a movie's premiere.
Theatre owners must also be pro-actively involved in anti-piracy efforts and focus on deterring piracy at their theatres. TSC can help you with tailored preventive programs to deter and prevent piracy at your theatre. We can train your staff to be more vigilant and properly monitor the audience for camcording.
