Digital piracy robs Bollywood

Piracy drains money away from India's entertainment industry.

    Bollywood churns out more films than anywhere else in the world but the viability of the Indian film industry is being threatened by piracy.

    According to studies by television and film producers in India, the Hindi film industry loses at least $215,000,000 anually due to rampant acts of the crime.

    Meanwhile, criminals are becoming the superstars of behind the scenes profits as piracy continues unabated and many in Bollywood blame it on weak law enforcement.
