India Police OK'd to Seize Pirated Movies

Wow! That's one hell of a broad warrant power they have over there.

"A New Delhi court has issued a warrant that gives police broad powers to search for and seize pirated movies in any part of the city, an official from an association of U.S. film companies said Wednesday.

The warrant covers the entire city and was issued July 19 by a New Delhi magistrate at the request of the Motion Picture Association, the global arm of the Motion Picture Association of America, said Chander Lall, a lawyer for the group.
...
Cheap pirated movies made locally or smuggled in from other Asian countries, like China, are readily available in bazaars and even upscale shopping centers around the country. Some are barely watchable recordings made in theaters, others are cinema-quality rip-offs."


I hate to say it, but here in NYC pireted movies are also readily available at bazaars. If you could call Canal Street a bazaar (I'd say you could).

Chris, Blogger has a new Word Verification Option that requires the poster to type in a keyword before the post can be submitted.

The option can be set under Settings > Comments > Show word verification for comments?

Setting this option to "On" should help in preventing spambots from posting.

Like 50 Cent says, "hope dis helps, yo,"
