TYPES OF PIRACY
OPTICAL DISC PIRACY
Optical Disc Piracy is major threat to the audiovisual sector. Pirate optical discs, which include Laser Discs (LD), Video Compact Discs (VCD) and Digital Versatile Discs (DVD), are inexpensive to manufacture and easy to distribute. In 2000, over 20 million pirate optical discs were seized, and by comparison, 4.5 million videos were seized worldwide in the same period.
Unlike traditional analog piracy, a digital pirated disc is as pure and pristine as the original. In addition, a production facility can churn out a huge volume of illegal discs in relatively short time. To illustrate this, an average illegal videocassette duplication facility with 100 VCRs can, in a 10 hour period, produce about 400 pirated cassettes, while pirates with the right CD pressing equipment can produce thousands of perfect VCDs or DVDs daily.
The xxx supports the introduction of effective measures to control the spread of optical disc piracy, such as licensing requirements for optical disc manufacturing facilities and the tracking of the import and export of manufacturing equipment. Strengthened cooperation among customs and enforcement authorities worldwide to share information relating to transnational operation of organized criminal enterprises engaged in production, export, or import of illicit optical discs is also critical.
xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxxx xxxxxx is the unauthorized use of copyrighted xxxxxx xxxxxxxx on the Internet. It is illegal to sell, trade, lease, distribute, upload for transmission, transmit or publicly perform xxxxxx xxxxxxxx online without the consent of the xxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx copyright owner.
Online piracy is a relatively new phenomenon, and, unfortunately, a growing trend. The xxx Worldwide Internet Anti-Piracy program investigates all forms of online piracy including: Downloadable Media, Hard Goods Piracy, Streaming Media and online offerings of illegal Circumvention Devices. The xxx is working closely with the online community to prevent the unauthorized use and distribution of film industry product on the Internet.
Downloadable Media refers to digital files that allow for motion pictures to be compressed and uploaded for direct download onto a computer. Pirates use Downloadable Media formats to illegally offer and distribute motion pictures to other Internet users. Typically, the pirate host will use illegal VCD copies of motion pictures to create digital copies that are recorded into a computer file. Using online communication avenues, including chat rooms, Internet Relay Chats (IRC), FTP sites, newsgroups, File Swapping Utilities (FSUs) and Web sites, the pirate offers these files to other Internet users who then download the motion picture file onto their own computers.
Hard goods piracy refers to the illegal sale, distribution and/or trading of copies of motion pictures in any format, including videocassettes and all optical media product. Illegal hard goods are sold on web sites, online auction sites such as xxxx and xxxxx, and via xxxxxx solicitations.
Streaming media refers to the transmission or transfer of data that is delivered to the online user or viewer in a steady stream in near real time. Similar to hard goods and downloadable media, It is illegal to stream copyrighted content without the express authorization of the copyright holder.
A circumvention device is any physical medium or digital file that allows for the circumvention of content protection devices put on films, videos, discs, etc. to secure the copyrighted content. One such Circumvention Device is the unauthorized, so-called software utility DeCSS. Any person that has the DeCSS utility can use it to break the copy protection on DVDs making it possible for motion pictures in DVD format to be decrypted and illegally copied onto a computerís hard-drive for further distribution over the Internet or otherwise, in perfect, digital format. Other common circumvention devices include "black boxes" and other illegal signal theft devices and macrovision defeators.
Online piracy is covered by the same laws that govern other forms of piracy. In addition, the US government recently amended federal copyright statutes to specifically address Internet copyright issues and enhance the protection of Intellectual Property online through the No Electronic Theft Act (NET Act) and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
Videocassette piracy is the illegal duplication, distribution, rental or sale of copyrighted videocassettes. In recent years, the xxxxxxxx shifted its investigative focus onto the illicit duplicating facilities or "laboratories" that are set-up to create and distribute pirated videocassettes. These facilities are often times capable of producing hundreds of thousands of illegal videocassette copies each year. These copies are then distributed to a variety of outlets including swap meets, co-operating video dealers and street vendors. The pirate product is often packaged in counterfeit videocassette boxes that resemble legitimate packaging.
Camcording: Pirates use hand-held video cameras to record motion picture films off of theater screens and then copy these films onto blank videocassettes and optical discs for illegal distribution. These illicit copies are not only distributed to pirates in the US, but also shipped overseas and distributed through illegal channels even before the filmís international theatrical release.
Screeners: Illegal copies are sometimes made from legitimate advance copies used for screening and marketing purposes.
Back-to-back Copying: A "back-to-back" copy is a pirate videocassette made by xxxxxxxxxx xxx xxxx and then copying an original video onto a blank cassette.
Identifying an Illegal Video
The absence of any of a series of indicators can help point to pirated cassettes, including: the lack of special markings on the plastic cassette, low quality labeling, tape length that does not correspond to the filmís running time, or the absence of special colored gates on the cassette. Most importantly, pirate videocassettes are ALWAYS of inferior quality to an original. Consumers are cheated into purchasing sometimes shoddy,
unwatchable product where the sound is garbled and the graphics are poor. Videocassettes can also be analyzed on special electronic equipment to determine if they are counterfeit as well as to identify the source of the piracy.
THEATRICAL PRINT THEFT
Theft of a 35 or 16 mm film print from a theater, film depot, courier service or other industry-related facility for the purpose of making illegal copies is one of the most serious forms of piracy. This type of theft allows the pirate to make a relatively high quality videotape from the theatrical print, which then serves as the master for the duplication of unauthorized videocassettes. Fortunately, this type of theft is extremely rare due to the difficulty in obtaining the prints illegally and also in transferring the print to another format, such as videocassette.
Signal theft refers to the act of illegally tapping into cable TV systems as well as receiving satellite signals without authorization. In addition, pirates have made businesses out of supplying consumers with illegally tampered cable decoders or satellite descramblers. Internationally, the problem becomes more acute when programs not licensed to a particular country are pirated from satellites and then re-transmitted in that country either by cable or broadcast TV.
Like signal theft, broadcast piracy is also defined by piracy that occurs on over-the-air broadcasts. However, instead of stealing signals, the illegal act may be the on-air broadcasting of a bootleg videocassette of a film or the on-air showing of legitimate films or television programs without permission from the copyright holder.
Unauthorized public performances refer to situations where an institution or commercial establishment shows a tape or film to its members or customers without receiving permission from the copyright owner. This includes "public performances" where an admission fee is charged as well as those that are simply offered as an additional service of the establishment.
Parallel imports describes the importation of goods authorized for manufacture or distribution in the exporting country but imported without express authority of the copyright or trademark owner. (Parallel Importation may or may not be lawful under local laws). Generally parallel imports undercut the domestic market by being available prior to authorized release in that market.
COPY PROTECTION TECHNOLOGIES
Many entertainment companies use copy protection technologies to protect their films against theft and some delivery systems for film content already use some form of copy protection, including DVDs (which use the Content Scrambling System), PPV, dedicated DSL set-top boxes, digital encryption encoding of satellite signals and videocassettes (which contain Macrovision).
Copy protection benefits consumers as well as the industry because without these safeguards, the industry would not be able to release their high-quality digital content for fear of widespread and rampant piracy. For instance, with PPV, because of the copy protection, there is a level of assurance that the movies wonít be copied freely so movies are offered at a very reasonable price considering the cost of making the product.
The motion picture industry has pursued those who distribute devices that break copy protection in any format. While no technology has yet proven foolproof, the industry continues to implement protection technologies which raise the threshold of difficulty and expense for the pirate and therefore help reduce piracy.
