T-Series Vexed with Google, YouTube

Bollywood entertainment house T-Series is frustrated that YouTube (owned by Google) has failed to take cognizance of the Delhi High Court’s interim order in November restraining YouTube and Google from infringing its content and plans to file a contempt petition.

T-Series has filed a suit against Google and YouTube for a permanent injunction and the case is slated to come up for hearing in February 2008. 

Super Cassette Industries (parent company of T-Series) VP Neeraj Kalyan told The Economic Times: 

In the interim, we plan to move a contempt petition against Google on the same. The company seems to have little regard for the law of the land as our content is still displayed on YouTube.

Google India Managing Director Shailesh Rao told The Economic Times:

The case is still subjudice and I would not like to comment on its details. In general, on the issue of copyright infringement, Google maintains that it will bring down the link of a particular page as soon as a lawful copyright owner files a complaint against it.

Founded by the late Gulshan Kumar, T-Series claims to own 2,000 video and 35,000 audio titles.
