Hat-trick hero Shivaraj Kumar's 100th film Jogayya (Jogaiah), which is being directed by Prem and produced by his wife Rakshita, has created lot of curiosity among the movie buffs ever since its announcement. Usually, audio CDs of much-hyped movies are pirated and released to market immediately after its launch. Now, makers of Jogayya are treading the path of Super bosses to curb the piracy of its audio CDs.

The movie Jogayya has already completed its shooting and is busy with post-production works. It will be released in April. Meanwhile, Ashwini Recording Company has bought the music rights of the film. In association with this company, the producers are planning to stop the piracy. They have planned to use the unique software 'Locking System', which has been introduced to Sandalwood by a Dehli-based company.

In 'Locking System', the content of each CD will be locked with one security code and this locking does not allow the copying of content. Director Prem says, "In 'Locking System', we use a magnate, which protects the content of a CD from copying. If one buys a CD, he alone can enjoy it. He can't copy it to a computer or another CD. Even if he tries, it won't be done in a proper way."

Meanwhile, it should be noted that nobody can stop miscreants from breaking this locking system. There are ways to copy the CDs with this technology. Ashwini Krishna Prasad, the owner of Ashwini recording company, is said to have formed five teams of squads, each team headed by a retired solders, to fight against the piracy of the audio Jogayya, which will be released on Feb 19.

However, the fight against the piracy is not a new thing in Kannada film industry. Earlier, several directors and producers have used different techniques to stop it. Recently, Rockline Venkatesh and Madhu Bangarappa of Akash Audios waged a war against it and they are successful in it. Now, the question is whether Jogayya team will be successful in its attempt.
