IBL welcomes decision on hostname
The US-based India Broadcast Live (IBL), which shows Indian TV programmes through the Internet, has welcomed a recent decision by the Delhi High Court allowing it to use its web address with a disclaimer.
After a petition filed by Rajat Sharma's India TV, the court had restrained IBL from operating the domain name -www.indiatvlive.com - in an earlier order delivered in January.
"It is particularly relevant to note that IBL has been allowed to operate the said domain name with a disclaimer," the US-based company said in a statement, referring to the latest court order delivered on July 10.
"It is a disclaimer that IBL, on its own initiative, had earlier posted on the home page of www.indiatvlive.com stating that it had no connection, affiliation or association whatsoever with India TV," the statement added.
"Further, it may be noted that as of July 23, 2007, the domain registrar has lifted the 'domain lock' and restored full operations back to IBL in compliance of the court order of July 10," the statement said.
"The larger suit is still very much alive and will be decided in due course."
In its petition, India TV had alleged that the Internet domain, indiatvlive.com, was similar to its trademark and that IBL had no legitimate right over the said address.
