Bengaluru Court Orders Twitter To Block Handles Of Congress, Bharat Jodo Yatra; Know Why

Bengaluru: Twitter was ordered by a Bengaluru court on Monday to temporarily block the Congress party and the Bharat Jodo Yatra’s accounts for alleged infringement of the statutory copyright of MRT Music by using sound records of the film ‘KGF Chapter-2’ illegally.

MRT music registered the complaint and an FIR on Friday against Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Jairam Ramesh and Supriya Shrinate at the Yeshwanthpur police station. The FIR was lodged under the provisions of the Copyright Act, the Information Technology Act and the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

M Naveen Kumar, who manages MRT music, lodged the complaint by alleging that Ramesh had on his official Twitter handle posted a couple of videos of the yatra, in which popular songs from KGF-2 film were used sans permission.

“The said videos were made using the popular sound recordings owned and held by the complainant. The said sound recordings are that of the cinematographic film “KGF Chapter 2” (Hindi version) which is popular globally,” Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

The Rahul Gandhi-headlined Bharat Jodo Yatra started from Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari on September 7 and is likely to hit Jammu on January 30, next year.

Five southern states — Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana — were covered in the march. It will pass through various states in the process.
