MUMBAI: Resuming its arguments on the serial Time Bomb in the Delhi High Court, Zee Telefilms today argued that, presentation features and formats were not bound by copyright laws.

"We have also screened some parts of the Time Bomb serial. We will screen its first episode on 1 July," said Zee counsel Maninder Singh, adding that, the broadcaster has also brought the court's attention to various global court rulings favouring the theory that presentation techniques and formats can't be copyrighted.

Zee also screened CDs of various television shows and movies which have featured the split-screen and screen clock techniques. According to Singh, the Indian broadcaster was trying to prove its point that, these techniques have already been used on television and movies and hence can't be monopolised by anyone. The Court has now adjourned the hearing to 1 July.

Twentieth Century Fox, had sought an injunction against Zee TV telecasting its Rs 110 million thriller Time Bomb. The US producer, in a suit filed on 17 June, had alleged that the Zee serial has copied the concept of its ongoing TV serial 24.

Since the court had refused to stay the Time Bomb telecast, the serial is currently on air. The second episode of the weekly is scheduled to go air tonight at 10 pm.
