Chennai, May 27 (BPNS)

After the Madras High Court restrained Internet Service Providers (ISP) and over 1000 piracy websites from unauthorized screening or copying in full the Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Vikram’ to be released on June 3, the production house,’ Raaj Kamal Films International’ owned by the Super Star is on high alert. The production house has already communicated to all the Internet Service Providers and Piracy sites that stringent legal action would be taken if the movie is copied or transmitted.

The Madras High Court judge, Justice Saravanan had on a petition filed by R. Murali Krishnan of Raaj Kamal Films International restrained 29 ISPs including BSNL, Vodafone idea, Airtel, and Reliance Jio 1308 piracy websites from unauthorized copying or transmission of the movie ‘Vikram’ in full or in parts.

The movie produced by Raaj Kamal Films International and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj with Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahad Fazil donning major roles is all set for a worldwide release on 1000 screens on June 3.

The advocate of the petitioner, Vijayan Subramanian submitted before the court that when the film is released on June 3, the websites would illegally copy, record, download, reproduce, transmit and communicate the copyright-protected movie.

The applicant also said that the 1308 piracy websites have the potential to upload and enable third parties to copy, reproduce, distribute and display the film through 29 ISPs which amounts to infringement of the applicant’s copyright.

Vikram of Kamal Haasan is one of the most expected movies of 2022 and Raaj Kamal Films International is worried that if the movie is copied or reproduced, it would amount to major financial losses including to those with whom the producers had entered into agreements for the purpose of marketing, promotion, communication, etc.
