Don’t expect to catch this week’s release, the Akshay Kumar starrer Thank You, on your local cable channel. Because, in a civil suit filed by UTV, the Delhi High Court passed an order restraining cable operators nationwide from distributing, telecasting and broadcasting UTV’s forthcoming release Thank You.
The SHO/Superintendents of concerned police stations have been directed to render assistance to UTV for the purpose of enforcement of the order.
This is the first ever case of a court granting pre-emptive relief from piracy to a plaintiff and is a huge step forward in the ongoing battle against copyright infringement, a official release stated.
Speaking on this, Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, Motion Pictures – UTV, said, “Piracy has been plaguing the entertainment industry for decades now and is one of the biggest impediments to the growth of the business. This decision by the Delhi High Court is a milestone judgment in our ongoing efforts to tackle piracy and we are confident it will act as a huge deterrent to cable piracy going forward.”
