    Dis movie industry protest is a child’s cry,what they should do is to make the movies obtainable in all coners of nigeria (ie,36 states),Africans nd Europeans in general. The problem with the nigerian movie industry is that after producing a satisfatory quantity of their movies and distributes it as they planned and 2 wht they r satisfy as their incomes or 2 the altmost of their financial strenght,perhaps have gone busy with another thing or wit producing another movie, neglecting the dmands 4 the old interestin movie needed by people at places where they are incapable 2 display those ones. These are the stage where pirates come 2 extend those old movies 2 those local stations neglected by d original producer, thereby making a gud profit 4 themselves,and this is a point where the original producer gullotons nd greeds over the profit they made irrespective of the people they satisfyd their desire. The movie industry should b contented with whateva they have made,bcos they piracy only help in extending there fames 2 the parts they never knew or the parts they fails to recognise,and be informed that you wil not eat all dat u laboured 4.

    Nollywood need to get a good grip on piracy, as some of the producers themselves behind closed doors do cut external deals. Some people will blame the marketers while others will blame the producers. If the proper law had been enforced then the effect will be felt down the piracy chain. You don’t need a rocket science to reduce these Nigerian movies piracy issue.
