LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Hollywood's major film studios announced on Tuesday they are ending their long-held practice of sending videotapes and DVDs of Oscar contending movies to Academy Award voters in a bid to thwart copyright piracy.


The Motion Picture Association of America, the organization that represents the major studios, said that its members, their specialty divisions and nonmember DreamWorks SKG film studio have agreed to ban the practice this year.


The move comes as a response to the 2002-2003 Oscar season when several tapes and DVDs of films in Oscar contention were copied and appeared for sale on the black market in Asian countries and for download on the Internet.
