Film Piracy

  1. 1. By Giselle
  2. 2. What is piracy? • The name given to illegal copying and selling of DVD’s and CD’s. • According to nidirect.gov.uk the money made from pirated copies is then used by criminals to fund the sales of drugs and guns.
  3. 3. The negatives in the film industry • Billions of dollars every year are lost due to Piracy online. • Can lead to fewer high budget movies and less releases. • It could slow down the process of the production stage as the profits made may not be as expected • Producers may expect to experience shrinkage and lower salaries.
  4. 4. Positives in film industry • Can give a movie bigger recognition. It can also lead to people that have watched the pirate copy and enjoyed it to go and view it in the cinema. • Can be recommended.
  5. 5. The negatives in consumerism • Bad quality videos if film has just come out in cinema, usually filmed on a handheld camera at the back of the cinema. • Sellers of pirated copies have no guarantee of a good copy, therefore no refunds or returns if quality is not as expected.
  6. 6. The positives of consumerism • Pay usually half the price of a cinema ticket. • Instant downloads from torrents-instantly watch films. • Once DVD versions are available, the quality automatically increases. Usually as good as the DVD. • On the go
  7. 7. • Movie sites like Netflix, Blinkbox and Lovefilm are all examples of the film industry trying to stabilize the piracy, for £6 a month (the price of one cinema ticket) the consumer can watch 100’s newly released and old films. As well as offering a wide selection of UK AND US hit TV series.
