The TFPC’s legal battle against online piracy of Tamil cinema, especially pertaining to TamilRockers and Tamildbox has begun. Today, December 11, the council headed by actor Vishal announced on Twitter:
“First FIR against Tamilrockers and Tamildbox – IPREC (Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Cell) initiated action on complaint filed by Tamil Film Producer Council. Further will be escalated to central government and to Embassies . #killpiracy #tamilrockersjail #tfpc”
TamilRockers and websites of such nature are known to notoriously leak new releases online within very short times of their theatre entry.
