Tamilrockers is that online piracy group that is notoriously famous for leaking the film right on their day of release. This time it dug its claws into Captain Marvel, which released this Friday with Amitabh Bachchan’s Badla. Just hours after its official release, Captain Marvel was available online for download, courtesy Tamilrockers. Previously, many other big films including Zero, Race 3, Kaala, 2.0, Thugs of Hindostan and others have been a prey to online piracy by Tamilrockers. Many actions have been taken to curb online piracy, however, it seems like Tamilrockers continues to do so with impunity.
Despite being banned by Government, Tamilrockers run their business openly without fearing the consequence. The notorious group uses many proxy websites to carry out their business. When Rajinikanth’s 2.0 released last year, the makers urged the Madras High Court to take an action on the infamous online piracy group. They banned over 12,000 internet domains that were registered to pirate websites. However, despite all the measures, Tamilrockers carry out with their dirty business without batting an eyelid.
Many Bollywood, Hollywood, Tamil and Telugu films easily find a way to Tamilrockers. They release the film on their portal right on the day of its official release. In the parliamentary Budget representation this year, the government has introduced a provision in the Cinematography Act to curb piracy. Though, Tamilrockers don’t seem to care about law and order.
