Village Roadshow has a big plan to stop piracy this year, and one of its goals could have a massive impact on you.
The Aussie film distributor has announced plans to go after individual pirates this year, saying it will start “suing infringers” as part of an aggressive five-point anti-piracy program.
But the company isn’t just going after internet users. After successfully, the company has also revealed it will try to block a further 40 websites this year, targeting “90 percent of the flow” of copyright-infringing content.
As well as suing internet users and chasing site-blocks, Roadshow’s plan also includes “Google take-downs and site ranking demotions,” a “major PR campaign” and a commitment to “availability of legal product.”
