Delhi High Court Protects Rajat Sharma’s Personality Rights, India TV Logo, and “Aap Ki Adalat” Show

(NTI): The Delhi High Court has issued a significant interim order protecting India TV’s brand identity and Rajat Sharma’s individual rights. The order stems from a lawsuit filed by India TV and Rajat Sharma against “Jhandiya TV,” which was accused of misappropriating India TV’s logo, the iconic “Aap Ki Adalat” show name and mark, and Rajat Sharma’s likeness without authorization.

The court’s decision prevents “Jhandiya TV” from using these copyrighted elements and any similar marks across all platforms, including websites, social media, and online content. It also mandates the removal of infringing content from major internet platforms like X (formerly Twitter), YouTube, and Facebook.

This comprehensive order underscores the court’s recognition of the value of intellectual property and personality rights in the digital age. It sets a strong precedent for protecting brands and individuals from unauthorized use of their creative works and personal identities.

For India TV and Rajat Sharma, this victory represents more than just a legal win. It reaffirms their commitment to upholding the integrity of their brand and safeguarding Rajat Sharma’s reputation. In an era where information spreads rapidly online, the court’s intervention is crucial in maintaining the integrity of their intellectual property and ensuring fair competition in the media landscape.

This ruling serves as a reminder to content creators and individuals alike that their creative works and personal images are valuable assets that deserve legal protection. It also sends a clear message to potential infringers that unauthorized use of copyrighted material and personal likenesses will not be tolerated.
