Court orders probe into copyright breach from 'Rahul ka Swayamvar'
A city court today directed the police to file an FIR on a complaint filed alleging breach of copyright and trademarks Act against Rahul Mahajan and two others associated with' NDTV imagine' for using the concept of'swayamvar'and airing the show' Rahul ka swayamvar'.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Mahaveer Swami ordered the police to register the FIR after a complaint by a city-based writer Gaurav Tiwari, who claimed that he owns the specific copyright of this concept of marriage.

It was alleged that the concept was posted on his website which is the trademark of his company and the channel was approached for selling this concept, script and design for starting a show based on Swayamvar.

Tiwari alleged in the complaint filed under section 156 (3) of Code of Criminal Procedure that his concept of marriages by'Swayamvar' was his intellectual property and was copyrighted in year 2008 but the TV channel used the idea and concept from his portal and started the show.

Tiwari had earlier also registered an FIR against actor Rakhee Sawant and few others on the same grounds but the police investigation was stayed following a petition filed by Rakhee and the TV channel in the Rajasthan High Court.
