T-series serves Rs 1 crore notice to CWG OC

first_imgMusic company T-series has sent a Rs 1 crore legal notice to the Commonwealth Games (CWG) organising committee (OC) for the alleged infringement of audio copyrights. Even as the company sent the notice to the OC on December 11 last year, the matter came to light on Friday, a day after some Australian firms threatened to file multi-million dollar lawsuits against the CWG OC for their unpaid dues. T-series alleged that the OC did not reply to its notice. It said the OC had obtained the ground license meaning that it had the permission to use the songs during the closing ceremony. But the OC did not take permission for the telecast rights of the songs, the company claimed. Apparently the songs of T-series were played during the opening and the closing ceremonies of the Games held in October 2010. It was however not clear which songs were used by the organisers that violated the copyrights. T-series had approached Wizcraft, which had organised the ceremony. But Wizcraft diverted the company to the OC since the rights were to be obtained by it.last_img read more
