The film industry is notorious for evils like nepotism and underworld dealings. However, if there is a word that the showbiz industry features, it is piracy. For those who are unfamiliar with this term, piracy means releasing movies online for viewership, free of cost. Since the people find that they can watch movies free of cost at home, they do not visit theatres. As a result, the movies that are released of late do not find viewers. The box office collection of movies is at an all-time low thanks to piracy. Apart from the payment, the creative instincts of the movie makers are not getting rewarded. So, those who are passionate about filmmaking have been vocal against piracy.
