NEW DELHI: The Telangana Intellectual Property Crime Unit (TIPCU), which has been in the planning for almost five years, is being formally launched this week in Hyderabad to create a sustained platform to bridge communication between industry stakeholders, ISPs, policy makers, enforcement agencies aided by legal and financial experts to fight software piracy.

TIPCU has been set up by the Telangana government in collaboration with the United States Trade Marks and Patents Office (USTPO), the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the Telugu Film Industry and the Motion Picture Distributors Association (MPDA, India).

State IT minister K T Rama Rao and United States Ambassador Richard Rahul Verma will formally launch TIPCU on 24 June at a meet followed by a discussion on the copyright enforcement model by key government officials and senior industry leaders.

TIPCU will set in motion, online content protection initiatives through proactive and stringent enforcement measures to counter online film piracy.

Rajiv Aggarwal, Joint Secretary in the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion of the Central Government which now deals with IPR issues and state IT Secretary Jayesh Ranjan will also speak on the occasion. Several filmmakers are also expected to speak at the event.

TIPCU will create a watch list of pirate websites similar to the IWL (Infringing Website List) of the British PIPCU at regular intervals; evolve mechanisms to counter online film piracy; and create an industry interface for sharing of intelligence on such syndicates.

It will work on effective measures to curb flow of revenues to infringing sites; and monitor high risk (Ad-supported) websites and initiate suitable actions to choke revenues to such sites. It will bring down and block infringing links, websites, hosting and streaming sites; provide immediate relief to the film Industry without having to obtain Court orders; and systematically eradicate pirate websites and platforms illegally hosting or streaming copyright content.

It will also evolve enforcement mechanisms to align with the ever-changing digital content landscape and criminal syndicates operating therein.

Earlier on 6 May 2016, indiantelevision.com had reported about the setting up of TIPCU and the collaboration of the state IT Department with the film industry and the USTPO.
