TamilRockers Website Banned: Members of piracy website Tamil Rockers arrested, They initially start with Tamil Movies and Kollywood movies.
By Tech Hunt
Tamilrockers is an online portal that engages in piracy and illegal release of Indian and Hollywood movies. They originally began with Tollywood and Kollywood films but slowly began uploading recently released Bollywood movies too. Piracy is a enormous problem everywhere in the world. Producers lose a lot of money when piracy websites leak unreleased movies online. This site is further making the situation worse.
This site has pushed many film makers to the edge of bankruptcy. And, the attempts to grab their operations are also only momentarily profitable.
While worried authorities take necessary actions to stop piracy, Tamil rockers also have managed to prevent them. They always keep changing domain names to fool authorities. On June 2018, the TFPC antipiracy mobile managed to nab few Tamil rocker admins. They also were able to shut two of the down web handles.
But it seems like all went in vain, as Tamil rockers is up and running again under a different domain name. It feels like anti-piracy agencies have a long road before them. As if today they’ve changed their domain names more than 20–25 days at least.
Tamil Rockers lately was in the news for having released Murugadoss- Vijay film Sarkar on the site hours after it triggered. It had actually announced on its official Twitter handle it would release a high definition print of the movie on exactly the same day it is released worldwide.
Hours after the hottest Shankar- Rajinikanth- Akshay Kumar film 2.0 hit the screens worldwide, the infamous piracy group Tamil Rockers published the film on their site on Thursday.
Lyca Productions took to Twitter on Thursday following the movie premiered, requesting people to see the film in a theatre, not succumb to pirated version of the film. “Hardwork of 4 yrs, crores of money, efforts of 1000s of technicians – all to give you a visual spectacle it’s possible to see, love and enjoy in THEATRES! Do not spoil the experience. SAY NO TO PIRACY!
