The High Court has barred as many as 90 websites from streaming,
broadcasting or giving online access to the movie Bang
Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang
is one of the most awaited flick of the year and the movie has
already claimed huge curiosity among the masses. Makers of Hrithik
Roshan-Katrina Kaif starrer Bang Bang approached the HC
with the plea that the film should not be viewed online without
their permission and the Court responded positively on
"In the present case, the websites owners are committing piracy
and collecting illegal profits, who are peeping behind the curtain
and laughing at the producers of the movies. If this is not fraud,
what else? In fact, piracy in copyright cases is a curse to the
well-established system in the country and it should be curbed and
dealt with an iron hand," the Court opined.
Makers of Bang Bang submitted a list of 90 websites and the Court restrained them all from making the movie available on the internet. Moreover, the Court also instructed several Internet Service Providers, Department of Telecommunications and Department of IT to ensure that none of the websites are able to provide online access to the movie Bang Bang.
