The need for entertainment has been bugging humanity ever since it got stabilized. Movies, alongside with several sources of entertainment came off as the dearest one. Then came the digital era with technological advances, serving as a platform like 0solarmovie.com that was a bit bolder and easily accessible. E-Platforms have played a crucial role in the last two-three years in evolving almost every field.
What is this “piracy” now?
Well, piracy is something that originated from the basic greedy mindset that wants everything for free, especially entertainment stuff. Piracy is somewhat similar to stealing where you use a particular service but never pay for it, and this statement thus defines why it is illegal worldwide. Remember when you could check all the DVDs of new movies which were still running in cinemas? Yeah, they were pirated.
“E-piracy”? Sounds familiar. What exactly is it?
When was the last time you saw a “pirated DVD”? And when was the last time you came across an online copy of a recently released movie? Exactly! Unlike DVDs, these online movies don’t even cost a penny and are thus the favorite piracy platform of all time. E-piracy has become one of the biggest concerns of content creators these days. With so many disguised tools like VPN and proxy links, it is getting difficult to hunt the culprits down. People are accessing several services without paying for them.
Still not convinced? #FearTheLaw
Well, piracy is completely illegal. Watching an online movie illegally can get you in trouble. The content owners can file a lawsuit against you. Moreover, the sources from which a user downloads a certain pirated media is completely unauthenticated and thus can pose serious harm to one’s system by hacking it, collecting personal data and by introducing a virus in it. So, moral of the story- NEVER EVER ACCESS PIRATED CONTENT.
What do I do if I come across pirated content?
Like every other crime spectator out there, you have two options too-
1) Turn your neck around- The easiest choice ever! Just click the back button and behave like nothing ever happened.
2) Stay and Fight for justice- Contact cyber cell or the content creators, get the website sealed, set an example for the society and feel like a superhero at the end of the day. The process might be a little time-consuming, but the results are worth it!
