The Cybercrime Investigation Cell, Mumbai has registered an FIR against M/s. K Sera Sera Digital Cinema Ltd upon a complaint filed by Viacom18 Media Pvt Ltd in relation to alleged online piracy of its film ‘Force-2’.

 

The film Force-2 starring John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin was released on November 18, 2016 and the pirated print of the film was reportedly found online on the same day. Viacom18 has alleged in the complaint that the film had been leaked online by K Sera Sera, thereby infringing Viacom18’s copyright in the film along with other offences committed by K Sera Sera under Information Technology Act, Copyright Act and Indian Penal Code.

 

K Sera Sera was one of the firms hired by Viacom18 for Digital Integration of its film ‘Force 2’, wherein the Digital Content Package (DCP) was sent to K Sera Sera before the release of the film.

 

The company spokesperson issued a statement stating, “It is really frustrating to suffer a loss due to online piracy as tremendous amount of money is invested in production, promotion and distribution of a film. This mechanism developed by us can trace the source of piracy and further strengthens our commitment to battle movie piracy. I believe that a concerted effort from the Indian film industry and support from the general public will go a long way in eradicating this illegal act. The Cyber Cell is presently investigating the offences complained of and it is likely to bust the nexus involved in this illegal activity. We hope the culprits are caught and brought to justice.”
