Information and 'Kadambur' urged all stake holders in the film industry to come together to combat video piracy.

Speaking at a function here, he said, if the Tamil Nadu Film Producers' Council, film exhibitors and theatre owners join hands, the government can take all steps to eradicate piracy.

"Piracy is becoming a challenge. (a portal which releases pirated versions of films online) is becoming a challenge", he noted.

Video piracy has been plaguing the Tamil film industry for long prompting the producers to approach courts for direction to block websites that upload newly released films online.

Recently, the Rajinikanth starrer 2.0 was illegally uploaded on an active piracy website, com.
