Govt examining optical disc law to check piracy: Secy (I&B)

The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting is examining a draft Optical Disc Law to check piracy in the film sector. This was stated by Secretary, (I&B), Smt. Asha Swarup in her remarks at the “India – The Big Picture Conference 2007”, organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in Goa.

The draft law has been prepared by the members of film sector at the initiative of Government of India. The Government is encouraging digital exhibition as it helps access the market easily, she added.

Smt. Swarup said that the Government is attempting to enhance the benefits relating to custom duty also for this sector as digitalization reduces the cost of distribution of films and also helps films in reaching B and C category centres very fast, besides acting as a deterrent to piracy.

The Secretary said that the I&B Ministry is actively pursuing the creation of a National Centre for Excellence in Animation, Gaming and Visual Effects with a view to promote this emerging sector.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development has been also requested to include these sectors in the curricula, at colleges and ITIs.

She said that the Government initiative of setting up an Export Promotion Council for the entertainment sector has been very well received and the Indian film industry under the lead of the Film and Television Producers' Guild of India has come forward to form the Export Promotion Council.

She exhorted all industry members to be a part of this initiative. She assured the industry of the continued Government support in helping the film industry grow at a faster pace and participating in foreign film festivals and markets.
