Q. Which one of the following is incorrect in the context of cinematography (Amendment) Act

1. A Part from cam-cording, the real menace of online piracy made punishable.

2. Government has done away with the requirement to renew Film’s license every 10 year

3. Strict punishment of minimum 6-month imprisonment and fine of the Rs 1 lakhs, which can be extended up to 2 years Imprisonment and 5 lakhs of fine

4. Recertification is required for the edited film for Television broadcast.

Correct Ans: (3)

Explanation: The Cinematograph (Amendment) Act addresses various issues related to film piracy and the certification of films in India. Here is the explanation of the options given:

(i) A Part from cam-cording, the real menace of online piracy made punishable: This statement is correct. The amendment includes provisions to combat online piracy, making it a punishable offense.

(ii) Government has done away with the requirement to renew Film’s license every 10 year: This statement is also correct. The amendment eliminates the need for periodic renewal of film licenses, simplifying the regulatory process for filmmakers.

(iii) Strict punishment of minimum 6-month imprisonment and fine of the Rs 1 lakhs, which can be extended up to 2 years Imprisonment and 5 lakhs of fine: This statement is incorrect. The actual punishment for film piracy as per the amendment includes more stringent measures to deter the offense, but the specifics provided here do not align accurately with the amendment’s prescribed penalties.

(iv) Recertification is required for the edited film for Television broadcast: This statement is correct. If a film is edited for television broadcast, it requires recertification from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to ensure it complies with broadcasting standards.

Thus, option (3) is the incorrect statement concerning the provisions of the Cinematograph (Amendment) Act.
