The new movie from Anwar Rasheed, 'Ustad Hotel', has become the first Malayalam movie to have a 'John Doe order' issued against Internet piracy.
This order was issued as a precaution following the DVD release of the Dulquer Salmaan movie which recently completed 100 days in theatres.
This kind of 'John Doe order' has been effectively used in the case of many Bollywood movies and some recent Tamil films like '3'and 'Maattrraan'. As per this order, websites that allow their users to download stream films without proper license from the film's copyright owner, can be sued legally and punished.
