The Delhi High Court has granted piracy relief to Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu; 23 websites have been barred from leaking the film.

Piracy is one of the biggest threats that the entertainment industry has faced over the years. A few websites even brag about offering print quality that can compete with the original when they leak movies as soon as they are released. However, it appears that Ram Setu might be free from the same!

According to rumours, the writers and producers of Akshay Kumar’s next movie Ram Setu had earlier supposedly noticed 23 websites that allow individuals to download illegally. They had established a strong enough case to warrant the granting of ex parte ad-interim relief.

The Delhi High Court has also banned 23 shady websites from disseminating, streaming, and downloading Ram Setu in an effort to combat piracy and deal with the problem harshly.

ETimes reports that the court made the following ruling: “Looking at the investments made by the plaintiff in the production and promotion of the film as well as the exclusive right vested in it under the provisions of the Act, this court prima facie agrees with the plaintiff that if the rogue websites communicate the film in any way, on any platform, simultaneously with the theatrical release of the film on October 25 or in its close proximity thereafter, it would severely impact the interstate commerce.”

According to the argument made, a movie’s journey begins with a theatrical release and ends with its availability on a variety of OTT platforms. Due to the prevalence of piracy, unlawful websites are able to violate copyright and release the film before its official release.
