FOPI, a new anti-piracy entertainment app
Jul 5, 2018-
Aavishkar Technologies, a technical organisation specialising in the entertainment industry, has launched an Android application FOPI via which movies, songs, television serials, podcasts, and audio books can be easily accessed for a fee.
The application prevents the chances of piracy as it bars sharing, replicating, and taking screenshots of the available contents and is limited to the user’s smartphone only.
“We have been working on this vision for a year now,” Sanam Karki, from Aavishkar Technologies, said, “Along with nullifying piracy, the real artists and creators will also receive the due credit and it will be easier for them to make a living.”
FOPI can be downloaded from Playstore and its contents can be bought via FOPI payment and eSewa. The developers are working closely with Nepal Telecom so that payments can be made via phone. This service will be made available within two weeks. Viewing films on the app can cost anywhere between Rs 5 to Rs 25. Currently, the app contains about 25 Nepali movies of which four are among the latest hits.
