Piracy is the unauthorized use or reproduction of someone else’s work without paying for it or acquiring rights for it. South Africa is supposedly one of the biggest online piracy markets since many people illegally download free Indian films. Several websites are devoted to the unauthorized downloading and distribution of copyrighted content. From Hollywood to Bollywood to other regional language cinema, piracy via torrents is very popular online. There are many severe laws and regulations to curb piracy with grave punishments, yet, every day, websites keep popping up making pirated content available to the public. Here is a look at Fzmovies, which is an infamous website to download pirated content.

Is it illegal to use Fzmovies in South Africa?
Considering the viewership of cinema in South Africa with the three major cinema industries, the traffic of sites that host pirated content is also considerably higher in the country. While the above-mentioned torrent sites, which are the most used across the world, are relatively popular in South Africa, people often tend to visit piracy sites that host Bollywood or Tollywood content exclusively.
What are the consequences while downloading movies from Fzmovies?
Globally pirated websites are banned in some countries because of security concerns. By visiting unauthorized sites and downloading films, you are putting yourself into trouble by defecting your device with malware. And also if you analyze the punishment doled out in cases of piracy you could never opt to download. Hence this kind of pirate website makes a loss to the entertainment field that can be measured in millions. The large number of people accessing pirated content is also a contributory factor in these losses.
