I have started Piracy Investigation when I was working for a media company. It lead me to a conclusion that contents are more important than packaging. If people have the same entertainment satisfaction, packaging is deprioritize.
The idea of getting without responsibility, is debatable. I can afford to buy VCD, DVD, Blu-Ray and foreign original content. But I view contents in social media. Buy original Korean DVD concerts, despite the Youtube download option. During this times, I was investigating piracy these are my observations.
Philippine packaging is close to some pirated DVD. The black casing can be reproduced and distribute without receipt or legal taxes.
The thin can edition has a bar code, and free mini posters inside, the compact disc has burned part in the middle.
The DVD paper packaging for TV Korean series; has the ability to store up to 20 movies. There are similar codes found in its packaging. If we can trace the origin of these packaging sources (printing, assembling and distribution) we can resolve and save the Philippine movie and tv industry; by protecting its DVD franchise.
With the help of Optical Media Board Philippines, piracy can be solved.
