Reliance Entertainment gets court protection against Bodyguard piracy


MUMBAI: Reliance Entertainment has procured an order from the Delhi High Court to prevent the illegal broadcast or streaming of its upcoming film, Bodyguard, starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

The movie is slated to release across 2500 screens in India on 31 August.

Reliance Entertainment has procured a ‘John Doe Order’ from the court restraining websites, cable operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and others from infringing or violating Reliance’s copyright by illegally showing the movie.

This John Doe Order gives protection to the intellectual property owner, Reliance Entertainment, from copyright violation by prospective anonymous offenders.

The company has already sent out about 2,000 intimation notices to cable operators, websites within and outside India and ISPs.

Earlier, the company had procured similar court order for its last film, Singham, starring Ajay Devgan.
