What tamilrockers done to the Tamil cinema?
Tamilrockers we all are familiar with this name. Tamilrockers is a pirated website. What really means pirated? It is nothing but using or reproducing others work without their permission to earn income or money. Others work is copyrighted and using such content by others is a punishable offence. Let us move on to the concept, tamilrockers is the pirated website, domain. They probably produce the copies of the newly released tamil movies and post them on the webpage. Which eventually leads to the decreased number of people watching movies on the theater, that leads to the financial loss of the producer and other movie makers. According to the reports tamilrockers first made their impact on 2001. At that time piracy is not a major issue, but now it almost ruined the movie producers. They were really having sleepless nights thinking of piracy. Many actors stood up to control this piracy but still it is impossible to curb their growth by now.
In Tamil film industry Actor Vishal have produced major impact on this issue and catch many pirated cd, dvd dealers. Also he warned the tamilrockers about posting pirated movies and what's the result. Tamilrockers in turn reacts to his words by releasing Vishal's movie on its very first day of release.
Another tamil icon, music director, actor Hip-hop Adhi too tried his best by releasing songs on his own but not able to control this.
Tamil movie directors and mostly producers are affected by this piracy. Nowadays not the specific movies every movie are pirated by these websites. It been a headache for the kollywood industry.
Recently Rajinikanth starrer Kaala movie is posted on the website by the tamilrockers on its very first show. It really shocked the tamil film industry. Then within few minutes the website got blocked.
What really the reason for piracy?
Is it the increased movie cost?
Sometimes yeah it may be true as in today's world people are giving more value to money. Hence the local village people are suffering from low money. In such instinct someone providing the movie for free of cost is really a boon. Movie ticket costs around 100-200 for a single movie. Its hugely enough for watching 30+ new movies from home itself using today's technology and internet offers. Making use of this technology the pirated websites are earning immense money.
How to stop this piracy?
The answer for this question is unknown. Seems crazy but that is the fact. People's thirst for obtaining everything on a freecost is the real reason for this issue and it is not gonna end now. That tells us the fact and fate of piracy. We the people need to stand against piracy.
Another important reason for piracy is the film makers as they fail to produce quality movies which eventually results in people's mindset to watch or checkout movie on pirated sites before going to the theaters. Somehow then they get addicted to this things and continue to watch movies from home without wasting their quality time and money.This may be an another factor. Factors like this leads to the increase in audience to this pirated sites.
The recent leak is the movie song from the Vijay starrer Sarkar movie.
