The advent of the internet and file-sharing websites has made movie piracy extremely popular. US motion pictures studios lost over ten billion dollars in the past decade alone. Due to the popularity of this unlawful activity, an increasing number of theater-goers are illegally recording movies and posting them online before they’re scheduled for home-release.
Experts on the subject argue that movie piracy is responsible for losses of up to 40% of box office revenue. Perhaps the most egregious violation of the studio’s content rights happens when privileged movie-goers illicitly record a film at a pre-screening or promotional event before the movie is released in theaters, and then publish it online. This is a major problem for production companies in the United States which they can’t afford to ignore.
