    Optical storage and devices maker Moser Baer will foray into the entertainment space through the Indian home video market.

    According to a release issued by Moser Baer to the BSE, the company will release video content on DVD and Video CD formats using its proprietary and patented technology.

    Its new division is in final negotiations to acquire copyrights of more than 7,000 titles in all major Indian languages.

    "The initiative will enable us to offer high quality titles at Rs 28-34 for VCDs and DVDs," Yogesh Mathur, group CFO of Moser Baer, said.

    Nice , but the content is not going to be the new releases . Some old movies will be the content. Still good start.

    There is an article in today's Eco Times that major production houses are not too keen on selling the rights at rates that Moser Baer is offering.

    Are most crap hindi movies worth spending even 34 bucks on? MoserBaer is being extremely fair IMO.

    There are good ones too, which will be released at this rate. Movies like 'Dhoop', 'Wedded Bliss', 'Shadows of Time' etc, will also be sold I guess, as their production houses will sell them for cheap. :D

    If Moser Baer gets into such a deal it will incredibly reduce piracy in India

    Yes...the less price shouldn't bother producers as there will be a balance due to high sale if the idea clicks

    It's a good thing that I have started using emoticons. That'll stop the negative reps I get. Atleast, I hope so.

    The producers don't get a cut on the sales. They sell the rights for a fixed amount. It is upto the company that buys distribution rights to recover their investment.
