Indian Pirates Try New Tactic: Look Legitimate

July 31, 2003 at 6:51 pm by Demosthenes  - 

IMDB is reporting that DVD pirates in India are trying a new tactic to escape detection. It says some Indian video pirates are importing bootleg DVDs from abroad, submitting them to official censors as if they were bona fide originals, then shipping them to legitimate retail outlets.

Detectives working for the Hollywood studios reportedly discovered copies of The Lord of the Rings — The Two Towers in shops early this month, although it is not due to be released in India until August 26, the newspaper said. This story was first reported in the Singapore Straits Times.

Thanks to Ringer Holly for the news.
