Movie piracy has become a big problem for the film industry across the globe. If this is not handled it could kill film industry that’s what fears Village Roadshow boss Graham Burke.
While speaking at Australian International Movie Convention on the Gold Coast, Village Roadshow boss Graham Burke stressed on below concerns.
