The Telangana Government has a special gift to treat Telugu
cinema with. The team headed by the IT minister of the state, KTR
says, the state will be the first in India to have a mechanism to
crack down on the 1 Billion dollar video piracy market.
The Government is also trying to decentralize the laws, to block
the torrent websites or sites which are streaming the pirated
movies. This move is indeed laudable and Tollywood celebs are
heaping praises on KTR, for coming up with an
Telangana Leads Fight Against Piracy. Avast
Ye Pirates! Depthi Bathini & Arundhati Ramanan bring us the
story here. pic.twitter.com/vBACQ0S60J
"First initiative in the country against piracy by our Telangana
Govt. Game changer in my opinion", read a tweet from KTR.
"@KTRTRS thank you is not enough. This is the best news
ever!!!!!", said Lakshmi Manchu.
"Outstanding Initiative!!👍", tweeted Rana.
"Incredible !!! Thank you so much ! The whole industry will be
indebted", opined thanked KTR.
"This is amaaazingggggg 👏🏻👏🏻 great initiative 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻", tweeted
Looks like this is going to be huge, if it is implemented as
efficiently as it is being promoted. According to the statistics
mentioned by CNBC TV18, Tollywood has lost over 320 Cr, in 2015
alone, and one can imagine how much the mechanism is going to save,
if it serves its purpose. Good days are ahead, probably!
