Comic Book Warning For Piracy

School children across the country will soon learn about the dangers of online movie piracy through a comic book launched by the recently formed Bollywood-Hollywood anti-piracy coalition. Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Chhagan Bhujbal, Home Minister R R Patil and Mumbai Police Commissioner D Sivanandan launched the book titled Escape From Terror Byte City, this week, at the inaugural session of Cyber Safety Week in Mumbai.

Around 10,000 copies will be distributed in Mumbai to children aged five to ten in schools, multiplexes and malls. A local adaptation of a comic originally developed by the New Zealand Federation Against Copyright Theft, the comic book tells the story of two boys who become trapped in a virtual city after downloading an unauthorised copy of a movie from a peer-to-peer file sharing site.
