quite rampant across the globe and it is important that people,
organisations, policy makers as well as keepers of the law work
together to eradicate this problem that affects the social and
economical ethos of our country and the world."

in developing response procedures to copyright infringement, the
notoriety of film piracy in India still manages to discourage
filmmakers from submitting their films at film festivals.
