Tamil Industry on DVD and VCD Rights

Tamil film makers are considering pro-active steps to fight piracy by releasing DVD and VCD rights within 3 months of a film’s release as in Bollywood.

At present in Tamil Film industry there is a ban on DVD and VCD rights for one year for small films and 3 years for big budget movies. Interestingly, despite the ban, one can get the original pirated DVDs within weeks, which causes industry an enormous loss.

Talks are being held among various film bodies and Rama Narayanan (president Tamil Film Producers Council) sais that distributors who pay Rs 10 lakh for a film can now pay Rs 8 lakh and producers could recover by DVD and VCD rights.
