Piracy is prolific in the film industry worldwide.
While internet piracy in New Zealand has reportedly halved since the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Regulations 2011, the practice of illegally accessing and downloading film continues to impact on everyone in the New Zealand film industry and affect potential international sales and film income.
To help producers mitigate the risk of piracy, we have developed Guidelines that must be implemented in the post production of a NZFC-funded feature film. We also strongly recommend these Guidelines be implemented in the post production of independently funded feature films.
