Students and youths who record the latest blockbusters in cinemas and upload them to pirate sites are being offered US$10 for their work. That’s according to an Indian Chamber of Commerce representative who revealed the latest piracy strategies during a meeting with police this week. ”The amount is being deposited into their account the moment they upload the film,” an official said.

MPAA investigators helped to catch the perpetrators, who were swiftly brought to justice. While both were subsequently found guilty, Hollywood pretty much ignored the news, probably for good reason.
