Block accounts of Congress, yatra: Court to Twitter

One-liner: A dedicated commercial court for Bengaluru Urban District has directed the micro-blogging site Twitter to block the handles of the Indian National Congress (INC) and its Bharat Jodo Yatra till the next date of hearing. 

Orders removal of tweets: The court also ordered removing three tweets posted by the party.

Copyright holder: The court order came after a suit was filed by MRT Music which is the copyright holder of the soundtracks from the film KGF Chapter 2. 

Infringement: It is alleged that its copyright has been infringed upon and sought a permanent injunction against the INC and its leaders from using its copyrighted music.

Synchronised version: Plaintiff has specifically produced a CD showing the side-by-side file i.e original version of his copyrighted work with that of the illegally synchronised version. 

Irreparable injury: These materials available before this court at this stage establish that if the same is encouraged, the plaintiff, who is in the business of acquiring cinematography films, songs, and music albums, will be put to irreparable injury, the court said in its order.

Bottom line: The court also appointed a commissioner to audit and preserve the evidence on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
