Major MSOs signs MoU with IMPPA to check piracy

The Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association (IMPPA) has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with major multiple system operators (MSOs) with a view to checking video piracy on cable networks.

A task force for prevention of piracy on cable networks was formed last October under the aegis of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to arrive at a solution aimed at checking video piracy on cable networks.

After several rounds of deliberations, a MoU was signed under which major MSOs have agreed not to show feature films on their networks till after a year has elapsed after a film is released.

Among the MSOs who have signed the MoU are INCable Net, Wincable, Siticable and Seven Star. Representing the film industry in the deliberations were Ms Smita Thackeray, Mr Yash Chopra and Mr Subash Ghai, among others.
