To curb piracy, Delhi High Court has restrained some cable operators from duplicating and showing the upcoming film, Chakravyuh, without proper licence from the producer of film, Eros International.
Justice Hima Kohli noted that “irreparable loss and injury” would be caused to the production house if cable operators, allegedly in the business of duplicating, selling and making available tapes, CDs, DVDs, are not restrained. “The defendants (cable operators) herein and other undisclosed persons are restrained from communicating, making available, distributing, duplicating, releasing, showing, exhibiting on camcording in any manner, the film Chakravyuh without obtaining prior authorisation/license from the plaintiff in that regard,” Justice Kohli said while passing the order.
Eros moved the court against cable operators, a multiplex in Ghaziabad and a free data sharing site saying that the “plaintiff (Eros) has exclusive rights to exploit the film. They (operators) should be restrained from communicating without license or releasing, showing... through CD, DVD, Blue Ray, VCD, Cable TV, DTH, Internet services, MMS Tapes, CAS or in other like manner,” the petition stated.
Directed and produced by Prakash Jha, the film will release on October 24.
