    I have a way to stop camcorder recordings in movie theaters, and would like to make money with this knowledge. It's tested and proven. It does not involve mounting cameras in theaters to catch pirates. The pirates will simply stop recording movies in the theaters.

    I can give a demonstration of how it works. I would like to simply sell the idea.

    "Illegal recordings of movies in the theater are the single largest source of fake DVDs sold on the street and unauthorized copies of movies distributed on the Internet"

    "In yet another attempt to prevent camcording in cinemas, the largest studios have paid over $5,000,000 to a surveillance firm called PirateEye to mount cameras and catch pirates."

    I'm located in New York

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Just contact them directly, if your idea is really groundbreaking and you can demonstrate that it works, then you wouldn't even need a pitch.

    Thanks for your reply, but I don't know who to contact. I've sent emails to MPAA and NATO but no response.

    If you want to be taken seriously, send a professional letter, not an email.

    Send me a PM and let me know what the idea involves, if it really is groundbreaking then get a patent firstly and then contact companies or else you will be shoved in the sidelines and before you know it you see your idea being employed worldwide in all the cinemas.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    I'm hitting the mailbox hard with follow up phone calls a few days later... I'm also putting together a video that they can see the process in action so when I make my sales calls they can see it.



    You're in NYC, hit up the member Tacktical here and perhaps he can work with you getting your face in the face of your potential clients.

    no no no. DO patent your idea before telling ANYONE.
    DONT tell an.y.one your idea until it is patented. Unless you want someone to steal your idea....
