NEW DELHI:Karnataka police has
registered a first information report
(FIR)against Belgaum’s only multi-
system operator,Riddhi Vision which is a joint venture of InCable,for illegal transmission of copyrighted content.
The action was taken on a written complaint
filed by Cable Star Copyrights Investigations,
who is the distributor for Cable TV Rights all
over India of Zee Entertainment Enterprises
Limited (Zeel).
Karnataka police took cognizance under
Section 37, 51, 52(A), 63, 68(A) of the
Copyright Act for telecasting of the Hindi film
‘Khalnayak’ starring Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri
Dixit on 20 July evening in Belgaum. The FIR
was filed against the managing director and
other directors of Riddhi Vision by Dr
Chandragupt, superintendent of police in
Belgaum. A spokesperson for Cable Star
Investigations told indiantelevision.com that
the pirated content for which the rights were
with Zee was being shown on the local channel
run by the MSO.
The spokesperson added, “It has been a
practice of various cable operators to run
content and specially movies without obtaining
permission from the content owners, and the
industry has been demanding strict action.”
He said Cable Star Copyrights Investigations is
working for anti-piracy and distribution of Zee
and other similar companies and has been a
crusader against such piracy for several years
and have previously lodged many such FIRs in
various states.
He said, “Such blatant transmission causes
immense loss of revenue to the content owners
and government. Cable Star Copyrights
Investigations has also lodged many complaints
against big cable operators in Maharashtra and
other states, in which they are pressing for
swift and strict action. Such police action
would definitely be a right step towards
stopping the menace of piracy, which has been
the bane of entertainment industry.” http://www.indiantelevision.com/cable-tv/msos/mso-in-belgaum-booked-for-illegal-piracy-of-zee-tv-signals-140808
