Rahul Mitra, co-producer of the film ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’, has won the case against YouTube. He had said in the petition that uploading his film on YouTube violated his rights. The Delhi High Court in the case asked Google LLC to remove filmmaker Rahul Mitra’s hit film Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster from YouTube which was recently uploaded illegally. Justice Rajeev Shakadhar in an interim order directed YouTube to remove the film within 48 hours, but the lawyer said that the platform was controlled by the American company Google LLC, which would follow the directive. YouTube said that the prosecutor should sue the person or organization who illegally uploaded the film.
Producer Rahul Mitra claimed that he was suffering a huge financial loss by uploading the film to YouTube as he was not in a position to sell the rights to the film on video streaming platforms like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
