Dear Movie Lovers,
We all enjoy the magical experience of watching films in theaters—the crisp visuals, surrounded sound, and the collective excitement of the audience. As we immerse ourselves in these captivating stories, it is essential to be aware of a growing menace that threatens to dim the magic of cinema: film piracy.
Recording films in theaters and sharing unauthorized prints online has become alarmingly common in recent times. This unethical practice not only robs the filmmakers of their hard-earned efforts but also deprives the industry of much-needed revenues that support future productions.
We want to convey a strong message and a stern warning about the consequences of engaging in film piracy. In response to this serious threat, governments and authorities have taken decisive action to protect the integrity of the film industry and safeguard the livelihoods of those who contribute to it.
Effective immediately, those involved in recording films in theaters or distributing unauthorized copies online face harsh penalties. Violators may be subjected to a 3-year jail term or a fine equivalent to 5% of the film’s production cost—a significant price to pay for a momentary act of piracy. [Source]
This warning is not an attempt to suppress the enjoyment of cinema; rather, it is a call to respect the creativity, hard work, and dedication that go into crafting each film. By choosing legal channels to watch movies, such as streaming platforms or attending theater screenings, we can contribute to a thriving film industry that continues to bring joy and entertainment to millions.
We also urge all of you, the audience, to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities related to film piracy. Together, we can build a culture of respect for intellectual property and ensure that the magic of cinema remains untainted by illegal practices.
Let us embrace the true spirit of cinema and celebrate the power of storytelling without compromising the efforts of those who bring these tales to life. By standing united against film piracy, we can preserve the magic of cinema for generations to come.
