FIR against ShareChat for alleged copyright violation


An FIR has been booked against ShareChat by South India-based Lahari Music for alleged copyright violation, under Section 64 of the Indian Copyrights Act, 1957 along with Section 201 of the Indian Trademarks Act, 1999.


Lahari Music has said that Mohalla Tech, which owns ShareChat, has allowed its users to download Lahari’s copyrighted musical content without their consent which has led to a substantial monetary loss to the company.


With over 60 million monthly active users, ShareChat is available in 15 Indian languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telegu, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, and Gujarati.
