Cinematography Act, 1952, and Copyright Act, 1957 both amended in 1984 provide for enhanced punishment. In recent times, cinema industry has been threatened by another piracy, the cable TV. Hence agitations and demonstrations were held by members of the Film Industry against this, who demanded it to be banned.
