Southeast Asian Movie Distributor ODEX Limited gave a warning to the Filipino Anime fans to don’t do cam-cording inside the cinema. This warning came after the several reports of uploading camcorded clips of the film ONE PIECE STAMPEDE which is screened in SM Cinemas nationwide.
It has come to our attention that someone has posted on YouTube a video clip from ONE PIECE STAMPEDE movie, we have traced the leak to be from the Philippines’s cinema.
We have painstakingly re-build the trust with Japanese copyright owners with a clean slate since the 2017 cinema video recording incident, now our anime community have taken another beating on credibility.
We need your help to stop video recording in the cinemas.
Our South East Asia anime cinema ticket sales is tiny compared to countries such as Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, USA and Europe. If there are more and more video leaks from cinemas in South East Asia, Japanese copyright owners will have no second thoughts to cut us off completely so as to protect their big markets.
The actions of a few inconsiderate people who just want to show off that they are watching the movie could lead to dire consequences. Not only the perpetrator may land in jail or get fined, but the rest of us will see the end of anime movie releases in South East Asia.
Please help spread the word and if you see someone recording the movie with their handphone, please tell them to stop and delete it.
If the person refuse to delete the video recorded, please inform the cinema staff.
Video recording in cinema is a criminal offence in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, & the Philippines.
With your help, we will be able to continue putting up the best anime movies in our local cinemas.
Please message us in Facebook if you find video clips of ODEX anime movies being taken from cinema.
Campaign Against Anti-Piracy
This is NOT the first time that someone caught doing recording inside the cinema. Again, camcording, recording and taking pictures inside the cinema is prohibited by the Philippine Law under R.A. 10088 or also known as the “Anti-Camcording Act of 2010”. Wherein, the law states that it prohibits and penalizes the unauthorized use, possession, and or control of audiovisual recording devices for the unauthorized recording of cinematographic films and other audio-visual works and or their soundtracks in an exhibition facility, providing penalties therefore and other purposes.
A person who will be found guilty of violating the provisions shall be subject to a fine PHP. 50,000 but not exceeding PHP. 750,000 and imprisonment of six months to six years
Piracy is stealing, and stealing is against the law. PIRACY IS A CRIME! (feat. Direk Ramsey) If you want the Japanese producers to screen more anime movies, lets support it by buying a ticket to watch it inside the theatres or cinema. Please don’t record it or unless Derek will arrest you! ↓↓↓
