Google™ Play and YouTube® to rent 600 MGM® movie titles

Google has joined hands with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) to offer 600 of the studio’s movie titles to rent through online video sharing service YouTube and its Android app store Google Play.

The deal will apply to the U.S. and Canada regions, and will include blockbusters such as ‘The Terminator’, ‘Rocky’ and ‘Robocop’, with more titles to be added gradually in the coming weeks. The deal comes after Google’s recently inked deal with Paramount to offer 500 of its films to rent in the U.S. and Canada, including ‘The Godfather’ trilogy, ‘Transformers’ and last year’s Martin Scorsese-directed kids’ movie ‘Hugo’.

The premium rental service of YouTube will also receive access to the above-mentioned movie titles. Google typically charges anything between US $1.99 and US $3.99 for film rentals. The YouTube service is accessible through computers and mobile devices. You can also access the online video-sharing service on Google TV, an Internet-connected TV platform, which is available on certain Sony TV models and Blu-ray players as well as the Logitech Revue set-top box.

Iron Man 2 was out on Pirate Bay, Even Before Release!

The one movie this summer that has been generating a lot of talks is Iron Man 2. The movie is to be released only a few days from now in the Northern American States.  Just like any movie before its release, especially the ones that seem to have all five stars rating always gets into the pirated market. The Iron Man 2 movie seems to have met the same fate. Even before its release the movie is already being sold as pirated copies.

The movie that has Robert Downey Jr in the lead role has brought in colossal amount of money approximately $100 million from ticket sales. The movie sure did enjoy a great weekend in the overseas market! The pirated copies seem to have been made there, it looks like these people who watched the movie debut oversees walked into theatres with cameras, recorded the entire movie, and made copies that were later sold.

If you were at The Pirate Bay, the innumerable Paramount Picture copies couldn’t have missed your attention.   If you wondered where all the theatre recorded movies went, then surprise of all surprises, they all seemed to have made their way here! For some of us this wasn’t much of a surprise, we quiet assumed that most of the pirated copies of movies sold here were the ones recorded in movie theatres. If you haven’t noticed already, or are not a patron of pirated copies, then you probably would like to know that these theatre copied movies are of the worse quality, you have to deal with blocked views, muffled tones of laughter and talk etc. Basically it has everything that you would notice while watching a movie in a theatre. However if you buy these copies, it just shows how bad you miss the theatres and that watching the movie was the least bit on your mind.

By now you should know that buying pirated movies or even patronizing them is a big slap on all those artists and creative minds who work hard at putting together a movie for your entertainment. Its not just about the hard work, its also about the capital that those guys invest in making a movie, and we ridicule them by buying pirated copies of the movie off the road. The Government needs to take a hold of this market and make sure that piracy of any sorts be it movie or fashion as well is put an end to.

Last year the FBI had arrested Giberto Sanchez with regards to selling pirated copies of the movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. He was rightly charged with violating copyright laws, unfortunately though, the case still lies pending.

There have been several instances where people responsible for selling pirated copies, through the Internet have been caught by the law. According to a few reports by the law enforcement authorities, selling of pirated copies are linked to organized crime, it’s a huge nexus!

The Motion Picture Association of America has also said that the DVD sales of movies have dwindled over the past few years because of these pirated copies that are released through the Internet.
