Following the complaint, CBCID had filed FIR against three piracy websites including Tamil Rockers for the first time. Those sites are continuously publishing the new movies illegally on their sites on the same or very next day of movies release. Producer Council had set the team to control and monitor these piracy sites.
Several complaints were filed at the past and this is said to be the first case on the illegal website registered based on the complaint given by Rajendran in behalf of producer council. He had claimed producers invested in the films are facing huge loss due to these sites. They also claim Udhayanidhi starring Ippadai Vellum movie was released on Tamil Rockers.
It is being very big challenge to Tamil film industry to control piracy websites. It was earlier reported Tamil Rockers had open announcement on Mersal release on their site and they have done it. Most of the high budget movies are online within few hours of theatrical release.
