Delhi High Court restrains individuals from circulating pirated copy of ‘Radhe’

The Delhi high court has restrained individual users from illegally circulating pirated copies of Salman Khan-starrer ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’, which was released on May 13th.

Providing an interim relief after hearing on an instant suit filed by Zee Entertainment Enterprises (ZEE) seeking a permanent injunction, the court said that the plaintiff (ZEE) has established a case in its favour and an irreparable loss would be caused to the plaintiff, in case an ex-parte interim injunction is not granted.

In its order, a single bench judge of justice Sanjeev Narula restrained individuals from “unauthorisedly storing, reproducing, communicating, disseminating, circulating, copying, selling, offering for sale or making available copies of the film or any other portion through WhatsApp or any other means or modes”, that may infringe the Plaintiff’s copyright in the film.

The court has further directed WhatsApp to suspend the user accounts of offenders named by ZEE. In future, if any other user account is being used for the purpose, WhatsApp has been asked to suspend those accounts also within 24 hours of receiving a request from ZEE.

Furthermore, the court has also directed Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to disclose contact details of the subscribers involved in the piracy of the film with ZEE to initiate further legal action against them.

ZEE had earlier filed a complaint before the Inspector General of Police, Maharashtra Cyber Digital Crime Unit under the provisions of the Copyright Act, 1957.

The media company had acquired the rights of the film for around Rs 230 crore and had released it via ZEEPlex, its pay-per-view (PPV) model for Rs 249 on digital platform ZEE5 and DTH platforms, apart from theatres globally, wherever they are open.

However, on the day of release, a pirated copy of the film was leaked and was circulated via social media platforms, including WhatsApp and Telegram.
