Tamil Rockers is known for leaking movies online. Despite the action being taken by law enforcement agencies, the site does not stop leaking pirated version for the free download. The team of Tamil Rockers keeps changing their domain name constantly, making it difficult to track them.
The government had on February 12 introduced a bill in Rajya Sabha to amend the Cinematograph Act and impose a strict penalty to combat the menace of film piracy. To check piracy, particularly the release of pirated versions of films on the internet which causes huge losses to the film industry and the exchequer, the bill proposes to make film piracy offences punishable with imprisonment of up to three years and fines that may extend to Rs 10 lakh or both.
