MPA launches training on latest form of piracy

Mumbai: The Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the Asociación Argentina de Distribuidoras de Cine (AADC) conducted a training session on Camcording in the city of Comodoro Rivadavia on 16 June.

Camcording is a form of piracy where pirates use camcorders to record movies directly from the theatre screen during a show and then copy the movie onto a DVD for distribution. These copies are distributed through illegal channels and reach other markets, even before the release of the movie in theatres.

The MPA and the AADC face the challenge of providing local movie theatres with the tools that will enable them to detect this new form of piracy and take appropriate action.

The training sessions are addressed to representatives from the different movie theatres to provide specific information and contents on Camcording. They indicate different courses of action to prevent unlawful activities, share illustrative material and explain the most convenient actions to provide the courts with the elements necessary to prevent this form of piracy.

The training session will be repeated in the city of Puerto Madryn on 19 June.
