In praise of Moser Baer, and some thoughts on movie piracy in India

Most of us watch movies, and we may buy DVDs/CDs for our personal collection also. In this case Moser Baer (India) is a company that keeps on pulling up surprises. I am impressed by the ingenuity of this company.

Piracy is universal. As long as there is demand, supply will be there. I mean for how much could a customer buy a pirated copy of a movie, here in India- from Rupees 30 to Rupees 100 Rupees (about 1 or 2 US dollars). Some time back the price advantage the pirates had over the original content was was huge, that most customers could not appreciate the original creators.
