The piracy bug continues to bite the film industry and the latest victim of it is Tamil movie Kee starring Jiiva and Nikki Galrani. Within hours of release, Kee was leaked online and a HD copy of the film was available for download on pirate website Tamil Rockers. The links of the download went viral before the makers of the film pulled them down with the help cyber crime officials. Kee is one of the many films that Tamil Rockers has leaked online within hours of release. Earlier, Telugu film Maharshi starring Mahesh Babu and Pooja Hegde got leaked online on the first day of release. Despite measures by cinema halls and film industry personnel, the piracy continues to affect the earnings of the film industry in India. The piracy business seems to have become a mafia in Indian cinema being run from foreign soil.
Tamil actor-producer Vishal had taken extreme steps jointly with Chennai police in eradicating piracy and his efforts seem to have paid off but only for a short period. An admin of a pirate site was arrested in Chennai few months before and things took a nasty turn post that. Pirate sites pulled down the millions of copies of the films leaked by them and replaced them with new links on new pirate sites which spread like fire. Stringent measures by officials seem to have no affect on the pirate sites who seem to have an unbreakable network throughout the globe.
In Bollywood, the recent release, Student Of The Year 2 also got leaked on Tamil Rockers right on the first day of release which was a shocker to the makers. Despite preventive measures, a HD copy of the film made way to the internet. Tamil Rockers has been one of the biggest pirate websites in India which has been leaking films within hours of release on first day.
