Film industry has today made an appeal to IT Minister K T Rama Rao that they are losing nearly 350 crores every year due to piracy. Especially the delegation represented by senior producer Suresh Babu made sure that KTR will accept their pleas and order an action immediately.
“We're losing nearly 350 crores revenue every year due to piracy. There are almost 240 websites that are uploading the piracy links of Telugu movies and allowinginternet users to download them. Government needs to crack on these sites heavily", said Suresh Babu, in his statement.
In the wake of movies like Baahubali and Srimanthudu getting John Doe Orders from Courts to curb piracy of those films, Suresh Babu feels that every film should be protected by Government. Today as the delegation submitted a memo to Minister KTR, he assured of coming up with a Special Police Cell to tackle piracy issue, and also gave assurance to take action on all the websites that are in the list within 30 days.
