Founded in 2011, Tamilrockers is a website that allows users to download illegal movies. These movies are typically new Bollywood, Hollywood Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Punjabi movies which are leaked on their website every week as soon as the movie comes out. With the growing popularity of TV shows and web series on television channels and online streaming platforms, even these are now available for illegal download on Tamilrockers in 2021.
Tamil rockers in India
Since piracy is illegal in India, the Indian government has banned Tamilrockers, but the website remains online as it routinely changes the domain name extension and can also be accessed through proxy sites directing users to the website. In March 2018, three people were arrested with links to Tamil rockers. Furthermore, in May 2019, more members of Tamil rockers were arrested in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
The impact of Tamil rockers on revenue
Movie downloads from Tamilrockers are detrimental to the revenues of the movie industry as the content creators are not compensated because users of these websites do not visit the theaters to watch the movies available on Tamilrockers. Tamil rockers have leaked several blockbuster movies over the years on the first day of their release. In recent years, movies like Baahubali 2 and Dangal have been hit by internet leaks. According to reports, the entertainment industry loses about $2.8 billion annually in illegal downloads. Indian internet users are said to be the second largest group using illegal torrent websites worldwide.
