Himesh Reshammiya - Alleged Copyright Violation

Alleged Copyright Violation

In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story, Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge. Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story were acquired by T-Series. However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it was not included in Milenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the film, he decided to use the song for his own movie. But at the time of release of Milenge Milenge, Himesh Reshammiya has once again composed a new song called Kuch to baaki hai for the promotions of the movie, which went on to become a smash hit.

Famous quotes containing the words alleged and/or violation:

    The entire construct of the “medical model” of “mental illness”Mwhat is it but an analogy? Between physical medicine and psychiatry: the mind is said to be subject to disease in the same manner as the body. But whereas in physical medicine there are verifiable physiological proofs—in damaged or affected tissue, bacteria, inflammation, cellular irregularity—in mental illness alleged socially unacceptable behavior is taken as a symptom, even as proof, of pathology.
    Kate Millett (b. 1934)

    There is all the difference in the world between the criminal’s avoiding the public eye and the civil disobedient’s taking the law into his own hands in open defiance. This distinction between an open violation of the law, performed in public, and a clandestine one is so glaringly obvious that it can be neglected only by prejudice or ill will.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
