Sale of pirated CDs has come down following the raids conducted by the anti-piracy cell.

Film exhibitors say that collections have improved after the police intensified action against those involved in sale and marketing of illegal CDs. Video library owners are also taking extra care not to exhibit pirated CDs of latest movies. But industry observers said the sale of pirated CDs was still active in several places.

People working in the piracy network use code names for marketing latest movies. Exclusive film titles are given only to friends and relatives.

They also operate from safe destinations to escape from the web cast by the police.
