Representatives from India’s entertainment industry joined hands to discuss and dissect topics such as piracy, self-regulation, consumption patterns of new age users, evolving patterns and preference of viewers and many more such ‘need of the hour’ topics at Pixels 2018 organised by IAMAI. The speakers at Pixels 2018 were unanimous in their views that the way forward for the digital entertainment industry, which is experiencing exponential growth, would be join hands and devise ways to combat piracy.


In his speech, Balsing Rajput, Superintendent, Cyber Cell, Maharashtra Police appealed to the digital entertainment fraternity to work together and help the government fight piracy, intellectual property threat and counterfeiting. He also highlighted the progress of ‘Maharashtra digital crime unit’ which has induced the government to create about 43 police stations to combat digital crimes. 2700 websites were found to be explicitly pirating Indian content that was monitored and among which 153 websites have already been shut thus making major savings for the industry.
