Piracy costs the UK economy about £500 million per year and countless jobs. It is a significant threat to the ability of artists and creative people to bring new content to the public.
Since July this year, Hatton & Berkeley and Maverick Eye have been busy working with producers, lawyers, key industry figures, investors, partners, and supporters to develop a program to protect the industry and defend the UK cinema against rampant piracy online. The entertainment industry can expect even more from these experts as they continue the fight against piracy in the UK.
Patrick Achache, cofounder and consultant for Maverick Eye, said: “We look forward to supporting Hatton and Berkeley in their program in the UK. Hatton and Berkeley understands the needs of their clients. They understand the big picture. Working with Robert (Croucher), we will be able to provide them with the support they need for efficiently and effectively dealing with the problems of piracy.”
In January 2015, MaverickEye UG delivered data for a court application of more than 6000 identities who illegally pirated the movie “The Company You Keep”. The UK campaign that Maverick Eye and Hatton and Berkeley will launch will be the largest in the UK since many years.
