FIR against Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Youtube MD Gautam Anand in copyright case by filmmaker Suneel Darshan

The FIR was registered by the police pursuant to the order of the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate AA Panchbhai under Section 156(3) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

The FIR was lodged for offences under Sections 51, 63, and 69 of the Copyright Act 1957.

“Complaint reveals prima-facie an information relating to the commission of an offence punishable u/s. 63 r/w section 51 r/w. 69 of the Copyright Act, 1957, which are cognizable. Hence, it is necessary that such offence be investigated by the police,” the Magistrate observed in his order.

Darshan had approached a Mumbai Court in a private complaint regarding his 2017 film ‘Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha’ claiming that it was illegally uploaded on YouTube even though he had not given the film rights to anyone.
