Hollywood Offers Money For Piracy Snitches

The Motion Picture Association of America is offering rewards to informats on DVD piracy in Asia. The “MPA estimates that pirated DVDs cost Hollywood $3 billion in lost revenue in 2002, and $646 million in Asia.” The MPA declines to say how much informants will be offered, that “rewards would be significant and dependent on the quality of information provided. ‘If we need more money we’ll get it. Money isn’t the issue’.”
