Rakhi Sawant Gets A Court Notice
A local court of Jaipur has ordered the Jaipur police to register an FIR against six persons including Rakhi Sawant, actor Ravi Kishan as well as a top official of NDTV Imagine alleging that the concept of a marriage-based TV reality show has been stolen by them from a private portal.
Judicial Magistrate No 27 Shilpa Sameer ordered the Karni Nagar police station of Jaipur to register an FIR for the alleged breach of copyright by lifting the concept of Swayamvar from the portal of a Pink City-based ''struggling'' writer Gaurav Tiwari.
The other persons against who the FIR has been filed are Managing Director of NDTV Imagine Gaurav Gandhi, the Executive Director of the show ''Rakhee Ka Swayamvar'' and two others for their participation in the programme.
In his complaint filed under section 156 (3) of the CrPC, Tiwari assumed that his concept of marriages through swayamvar was his intellectual property and copyrighted in the year 2008 itself but the TV channel had stolen the idea and concept from his portal Swayamvar.com and started the show. The court directed the police to register an FIR in connection with the complaint and investigate it.
