Kochi: Kozhikode principal district sessions court intervened in the allegations of copyrights infringement raised by the music band Thaikkudam Bridge against the latest Kannada hit ‘Kantara’. The court ordered that the song ‘Varaha roopam…’ in the movie ‘Kantara’ could not be used without obtaining the consent of the complainant. The court banned the director of Kantara, producer, music director, online platforms such as Amazon, YouTube, Spotify, JioSaavn and Wynk from using the song. By extending gratitude for all who supported, Thaikkudam Bridge shared a post informing the court order.
The court announced the order after considering the petition filed by Thaikkudam Bridge against the movie ‘Kantara’. Supreme Court lawyer Satheesh Murthy appeared for Thaikkudam Bridge in the case.
Following the release of ‘Kantara’, Thaikkudam Bridge came up with the allegations that the orchestral arrangement of the song ‘Varaha roopam…’ has been plagiarized from the song ‘Navarasam’ violating the copyrights rules. Though the music director of ‘Kantara’ repudiated this and informed that the team had only drawn inspiration from ‘Navarasam’, Thaikkudam Bridge renounced the claims.
