It simply means that a person is not allowed to have any kind of recording device in premises of filming sets or in theatres as cam prints were developed through the spy camera against the projection of the film. Violation of this act leads to punishable imprisonment of 3 years extending to 10 years or a heavy amount of fine of 10 lakh rupees.
Anil Kapoor also thanked him for the piracy act against the online content which emerges the functioning of protective measures for the increasing piracy in the nation, as Producers and sponsors getting a hefty loss after the leaked content.
This act took into the consideration and showed his colors before its regulation as a recent case of film “URI” leaked online for a demonstration to eradicate piracy in the nation, it’s file size accounted to 3Gb. But the twist in the tale is that it only featured its cast talking about piracy and gave a heavy blow to the thefts. Now, this law will improve the conditions of the industry and help Indian cinema to grow according to their contents.
