An FIR has been registered against Google CEO Sundar Pichai and five others at the MIDC police station. The FIR was filed in response to a copyright infringement complaint filed by director-producer Suneel Darshan.
Darshan claimed that despite not giving anyone the film rights to his 2017 film, Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha, the film had been uploaded to Google-owned YouTube. He also stated that several people were making money by uploading the film to the video-sharing platform, despite the fact that the film was his intellectual property.
He added that he had raised the issue with YouTube for many years but didnâ€™t receive any response from it, so he had to approach the court.
The FIR has been registered under Sections 51, 63 and 69 of the Copyright Infringement Act, 1957.
