Film Chest Media Group- Piracy Watch

Film Chest Media Group seems to be the umbrella company for Synergy
Entertainment Inc. And video Pirate Phil Hopkins ( synergy ) .
This may be a good example of how hard to find out video piracy , IP and
copyright infringements work to the advantage of the thieves.
Set up a few companies, mix in a few infringed upon titles with hundreds
if not thousands of public domain films. And above all, disguise the stolen
titles with different campaigns and art work. Producers and copyright holders beware. Phil Hopkins knows how to do it all. Unfortunately, this is essential
dirty laundry , but for a good cause; It may help others to avoid being
ripped off royally , by a fast talking, lying flesh eating maggot.
NEWS FLASH. Two moths ago this writer received a letter from Hopkins
attorney , implying legal actions for slander and defamation. Good luck.
Mr. Hopkins. It would indeed be actionable if it were not true.
Too bad for you. It is not only true , but fact by your own personal
admissions and records. This is what one could call real ” Hutzbah”.
Hopkins admits having bought a 16 mm film print of The Giant Spider
Invasion on E bay. Transfered it to a digital master and began selling
DVD’s until he got caught in 2008 . In the meantime the film Illegally
through this criminal act was dissipated in the electronic media for
years at huge losses to this writer and owner of the film.
Hopkins had a smooth well working bootlegging operation going for years
engaging a computer, post production guru name John Keegan to do his
dirty work of re- mastering, changing campaigns on some five other films of
this writer for wide spread marketing . How big are the losses ? How high is the sky? All this going on in Rockport Ma. Will wonders never cease.?
The Story of Synergy- Hopkins- Film Chest Media Group deserves a full
blown booklet (at least) , for educational purposes and an example for
Congress before congress again proposes something on the order of
the PIPA bill. Now all is on the record in writing while digging deeper….Stand by for more as PIRACY WATCH continues with more precious details…………
