  1. 1. Illicit Business: The Global Economy of Industrialised Video piracy By Elijah Odundo
  2. 2.  Intellectual Property – copyright, trademarks and patents Copyright – fundamental in understanding video business since it‟s based on ownership of the rights to copy, distribute or present works Piracy(industrialised)
  3. 3.  Intellectual Property law deals with intangibles: it turns the creations of the mind – inventions, designs, creative works – into property by legally protecting exclusivity over the rights to use or access. Property rights create a monopoly for the work, granting ownership over the rights to use, access and present works. Helps creators to get better remuneration - motivation to create new or refine existing work
  4. 4.  Unauthorized copy and distribution of copyright content A legal concept related to copyright infringement. In regards to audiovisual industries, it‟s a concept related to technology and commerce. Represents the shadow economy of the video business Operates through highly organised facilities for illegal production and distribution
  5. 5.  Making video as packaged public good for the market Copying and circulating video in hard tangible forms The reproducibility and dispersibility of video with regard to intellectual property Emergence and increase of video media demand on global markets
  6. 6.  Intellectual Property have commercial value – define and control legal use and access of work Intellectual property rights are fundamental in commodifying video media Intellectual property rights are the very lifeblood of the video business
  7. 7.  Piracy is a threat measured in terms of lost revenues and trade Links between piracy operations and organised crime syndicates present challenges to law enforcement agencies Video piracy is an international issue and a globalised media universe
  8. 8.  Industrialised video piracy operates transnational networks of distribution Illegal recordings come onto the market through a highly organised structure of producers and distributors Pirates are bound in a relationship with corporate forces as well as hardware technology firms to accomplish their missions Pirates, in some cases, are reported to use proceeds from piracy to fund terrorism
  9. 9.  Requires a range of legislative, enforcement, and technological measures to be implemented Ownership of rights has become a key currency in the global trading system Establishment of legal and enforcement regime for copyright (e.g International Intellectual Property Alliance –IIPA) and global anti-piracy programmes like MPAA Strategy of international day-and-date releasing
  10. 10.  Piracy operations have links with organised crime syndicates which engage in multiple lines of illegal activity Divisions in the global cultural economy between „copyright rich‟ and „copyright poor nations exacerbates the problem Digitisation aids video pirates in their efforts to compress time and space Efforts to combat piracy remain rooted in national contexts
  11. 11.  The methods and practices of audiovisual piracy is tied to developments in media technology Digitisation has multiplied channels for copyright infringement
  12. 12.  Workprint & theatrical release print theft entails stolen or „borrowed‟ working cuts of film from post-production facilities or effects houses Camcorder piracy is the most prevalent, easy and aids the temporal and spatial dynamics of illegal production to speedily reach international markets Optical disc piracy – illegal copying of DVD or VCD recordings Internet piracy – the virtual existence of industrialised piracy
  13. 13.  Since piracy is an international issue, do divisions in the global cultural economy between “copyright rich” nations and “copyright poor” nations further complicates the war on piracy? Is intellectual property right justified in the limelight of creativity? Does it really protect the creators of the ideas?  Thank you
