The Delhi High Court has directed Twitter to disclose the basic subscriber information (BSI) of users who are allegedly sharing clips of Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Jawan without authorization. The BSI includes e-mails, IP addresses, and phone numbers of the users who shared the content. The court’s decision came after the film’s production company, Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd, filed a lawsuit seeking to block unauthorized broadcasting of the film’s content and clips.
The counsel representing the plaintiff alleged that five accounts on Twitter were sharing infringing material and claimed that those responsible for the leaks had access to the company’s system. In light of this, they requested the disclosure of information regarding the users of these accounts. Upon this, Justice C Hari Shankar ordered Twitter to provide information of the accounts with advance service to the counsel of the plaintiff so that the plaintiff can take appropriate action.
The court had earlier directed YouTube, Twitter, and Reddit to immediately block and take down all infringing contents and clips referred by the production house. The court’s interim order came on a plea by the production house seeking to restrain various rogue websites and ISPs and others who are providing unauthorized access to the film’s content. The Delhi High Court’s decision is a reminder that social media platforms must take responsibility for the content shared on their platforms and take appropriate measures to prevent copyright violations.
