Film and Music companies allies against piracy


Film makers announced their plans to fight film-piracy globally. Hollywood studios on Tuesday said they plan to "significantly" increase monitoring of online film trading, as part of a broader antipiracy campaign aimed at quashing Net movie piracy.

Also the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) said it will also step up antipiracy education efforts, including working closely with colleges to create student "codes of conduct". As part of it's anti-piracy campaign, MPAA will place ads on newspapers and consumer magazines informing why piracy is illegal and of its impact on the economy.

Although there aren't any file lawsuits against individual movie-swappers, many fear that film companies will soon proceed to similar legal actions.

Online movie-trading through peer-to-peer networks such as Kazaa or eDonkey, while never as prevalent as song-swapping, as and Having DVD burners moved into the mainstream and broadband Internet connections enabling mass file downloading from peer-to-peer networks, these facts has become more of a concern to film studios.

Recent studies have revieled that between 400,000 and 600,000 films are illegally downloaded each day costing film companies billions of dollars.

The music industry also continues it's own war against piracy, lately seeking government rules to require digital radio to use technology to prevent illegal copying and piracy of songs.

The Recording Industry Association of America, in comments filed this week to the Federal Communications Commission, said the new high-definition radio, if left unprotected from copying, would create vast opportunities for piracy.

The group said the FCC should require encryption of music or "audio protection flag" technology to identify the source of the music.

From the above it seems that film and music companies fight side by side in the war agains piracy.
