Going into the details, Telangana government’s new set up called Telangana Intellectual Property Crime Unit (TIPCU) that comprises of representatives from the local Police, Telugu film Chamber of Commerce, State IT Ministry, Internet Providers & other legal experts will function effectively in identifying the pirated content and aid in curbing them within no time.
