New Delhi, Entertainment major T-Series has taken the video-sharing website YouTube.com to court, alleging violation of copyrights for its music products.
Bhushan Kumar of T-Series has filed a case against YouTube LLC and its parent company Google Inc in the Delhi High Court.

On Nov 5 the court issued a notice against YouTube LLC and Google Inc. and has passed an interim order restraining them from "reproducing, adapting, distributing, communicating, transmitting, disseminating or displaying on their websites or otherwise infringing in any manner any audio visual works in which the SCIL (Super Cassettes Industries Ltd, which owns the T-Series brand) owns exclusive, valid and subsisting copyright".

"You can free download and upload on youtube.com and the website is using our promotional materials without seeking our permission," Kumar said.

"We have been negotiating with them for a long time, but they get away by saying, 'Surfers are doing it, we are not doing anything'. But they are allowing the surfers to use their website to do the crime and they should pay for it. It is harming our business," Kumar told IANS on telephone from Mumbai.

"More hits means more revenues. People are flocking the website and it earns revenues in millions from advertisements. It encourages people to upload copyrighted work on the website without obtaining any license or permission from the rightful copyright owners and without paying them any royalty.

"The revenue of the music industry has gone down by 40 to 50 percent because of the illegal websites," said Kumar.

"Earlier youtube.com was a pirated site. But recently it has been taken over by Google. After the takeover, Google paid a huge amount of money to all the foreign music labels to allow them to use their promotional materials but they are not doing the same for Indian music companies," he added

I am sure lots of videos have been removed..people used to upload whole episodes of Koffee With Karan and they have removed some of the ones that i have watched and only allow one minute clip.
