PASSION OF CHRIST A BIG HIT WITH MUSLIMS IN MALAYSIA


Findlaw offers this feature on DVD piracy in Malaysia, where Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ" is officially forbidden to that country's Muslim majority.

The IPKat says this shows that the ideal conditions for DVD piracy have been created: (i) a high level of demand for (ii) a film on current release (iii) which can't actually be seen by most of the people who want to see it, in (iv) a technologically sophisticated jurisdiction (v) where there are channels through which unlawful products can easily and profitably be distributed.

Dress Jesus here; Muslims for Jesus here; Flaming Jesus here; Purple Jesus here
