MUMBAI: UTV has won a case against Percept Pictures regarding the copyright dispute of its film Shoebite.
The latter filed a case against Shoojit Sircar, the director of the film, and UTV Motion Pictures asking them to desist from infringing their copyrights in the script and dialogue of their film Johnny Walker.
On July 16 2008, an order was passed in favour of Percept restraining UTV from proceeding with the shooting of the film. However, even after UTV filing an appeal against the order, the suit was pending for hearing.
On May 2 last year, the matter finally came up for hearing before the mediator appointed by the Delhi High Court Mediation Cell. Finally in March this year, the Honorable Court dismissed the suit filed by Percept and upheld UTV‘s stand on the issue.
