To combat the
illegal recording of movies in local cinemas, the
industry in Malaysia has deployed a battalion of
large, well-muscled fellows who are stationed at all
points of entry to cinema halls nationwide. These
intimidating characters, code-named Mr. Security,
are employed solely to remind moviegoers that
recording in cinemas is illegal.
At the top of the
piracy pyramid, camcorders supply more than 90% of
newly released movies that illegally end up on the
Internet and in street markets around the world.
Apart from Mr.
Security, MFACT also actively participate in
National Intellectual Property Day and Consumer Day
to educate consumers on video piracy in the market.
Anti-Piracy trailers were also produce to alert the
consumers on the movie piracy.
