The Delhi High Court has blocked rogue websites from streaming 'Brahmastra Part One: Shiva.'
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt feature in the lead roles.
Following the approval of a suit filed by Star India for copyright infringement.
In its complaint, Star India said that it is industry standard to initially release the picture for theater distribution.
Then make it available for viewing across multiple platforms.
The theatrical release of a film is the most crucial stage since the financial worth of a picture is determined by its popularity and success during this time period.
"However, in order to generate illicit profits, unscrupulous websites produce unauthorized copies."
Make them accessible for public viewing, downloading, and communication virtually concurrently with the film's theatrical debut.
"In the past, Plaintiff transmitted to the public infringing copies of many movies produced/distributed by Plaintiff."
"Made accessible for watching and downloading on a variety of websites within hours of the theatrical premiere," they said.
