In this particular case, INDECOPI “decided that its regional offices in the cities where the film will be shown, implement the necessary actions against piracy. In the same line, the said Institute “urged the public to reject any offer of pirated material from unscrupulous traders who profit from the efforts of others.”
Reading the news, which is pleased to hear, one may wonder why this extra care? What about non-national products? Then I thought of the proverb ‘You should take care of family and people close to you before you worry about helping others’. Indeed, perhaps with this extra-action, film viewers may start to realize how important is to protect copyright. Hopefully it will give them a sense of deference for their own product and valuate their creators and artist. At the end, charity should begin at home.
