Court stays Shreya Ghoshal from singing copyrighted songs

AHMEDABAD: Famous Bollywood singer Shreya Ghoshal may not sing certain popular songs during her concert scheduled on February 26 in the city, if the organizers do not settle copyright issues with a music company.

A city civil court has temporarily restrained the organizers and the singers from either playing or singing songs that are copyrighted by Yashraj Films, Shemaroo and Zee Music. The court has sought reply from the organizers by Thursday.
This happened after a consortium of music companies Novax Communication Pvt Ltd dragged local organizing firm Coconut Media Box to court. Novax holds the music rights for the three music companies.

Novax has claimed that the organizers have not obtained its permission by paying royalty to play its copyrighted songs.
It urged the court to restrict the singer from singing songs whose copyright belongs to Novax.
The court has restrained the organizers from using these songs till February 23, when their response on the issue has been sought.
