When it comes to pirating movies, there are many ways one could do that, like rip a copy of the DVD or Blu-ray and post it online, or one could even go old school by sneaking a camera into the cinema and recording it there and then and hope that no one catches you. However pirates now need to be careful because over in the UK, cinema staff will be stepping up their efforts.

As some of you guys might have heard, the next James Bond movie Spectre is expected to be released towards the end of the year. To help combat piracy in the cinemas, UK cinema staff members will be given a pair of night-vision goggles and patrol the cinema in a bid to help catch any moviegoer looking to pirate the movie.

Given how far along technology has come, it has been said that movie pirates are now becoming more sneaky. For example they are hiding recording devices in popcorn cartons, or in some cases some are even using their phones hidden in a sock in an attempt to record the movie.

According to Kieron Sharp, director general of the Federation Against Copyright Theft, “James Bond is a big risk and we will be working with cinema operators and the distributors making sure we will keep that as tight as possible. We really don’t want to see that recorded.” Will their efforts succeed? We suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
