I love how the web has democratized the media and entertainment industry. So when I heard of the Shemaroo IPO and how an old hand in the industry has decided to leverage new technology, I was immediately interested. Here is a list of the rights they own:
Shemaroo has the rights to 2,918 films. Of this, Shemaroo owns the perpetual rights of 759 films:355 films in Hindi,364 in languages other than South Indian and 40 are children’s and devotional movies. Besides this, Shemaroo owns aggregate rights (limited period ownership) of 2,159 films, of which 1,289 are in Hindi, 728 in regional languages and 142 special interest content.
