Illegal Downloads Halved

The rule allows fines of up to $15,000 to be issued to illegal downloaders caught three times. Rianz reported a significant drop in piracy levels — its data suggesting the incidences of top-200 movies being viewed illegally went from 110,000 in August to 50,000 in the following month, when the rule came into force.
