KOCHI: It has been just three days after the launch of www.reelmonk.com, the online movie releasing site, that a movie screened there was uploaded to torrentz, the free movie downloading site. Njan Steve Lopez by Rajeev Ravi was the movie seen on Torrentz within hours of the movie being screened on Reelmonk. But the tracker system on the site traced the piracy within 12 minutes of it being uploaded to Torrentz and could even trace the person who uploaded.

The reelmonk staff called the person from Kasargod and asked him to withdraw the movie version from Torrentz. However, he expressed his inability as once uploaded to Torrentz it could not be withdrawn. The staff members immediately handed over the details of the person to the anti-piracy cell and registered a complaint with them. In the inquiry that followed, it was found that this person used to upload movies to Torrentz very often. “The site which was launched on Monday has achieved record number of viewers in a very short span,” says Blaise M Crowly, CEO, Xincoz, the promoting company of reelmonk. The site now offers five movies including NeeNa by Lal Jose and Compartment by Salim Kumar apart from Njan Steve Lopez.
