Video library association backs Film Chamber

By Our Staff Reporter

PATHANAMTHITTA, JUNE 25. Various `recognised' video libraries in the district remained closed today in a support of the Cinema bandh observed by the Kerala Film Chamber of Commerce.

In a statement issued here today, the Kerala Video Library Association (KVLA) State general secretary, Prakash Inchathanam, has said that the association has fully endorsed the views of the Film Chamber in its tussle with the Association of Malayalam Movie Actors.

Mr. Prakash said that the KVLA has already submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister, A.K.Antony and the Culture Minister, G. Karthikeyan, seeking immediate intervention to check video piracy.

He said that the Government should take steps to make it mandatory for the video producers and video libraries in the State to obtain licence.

The association has also expressed deep concern over the increasing trend of attacks on its members who oppose video piracy in various parts of the State.
