The Iranian music band Barobax Corp has issued a notice to Eros International Media, Illuminati Films Private Ltd and Super Cassettes Ltd.
“On March 12 this year, the band came across the promotions of the movie ‘Agent Vinod’ on satellite television in Iran. The song ‘Pungi Baja De..’ was being aired. On listening to the song, the band realised that the initial portion of the song is lifted without any change from the title song of their album,” the notice claims.
According to the notice, the band is the owner of the copyright of the song ‘Soosan Khanoom’ which is registered under the Copyright Act in Canada on June 30 last year and hence the music of the song cannot be used without the band’s permission. Soon after learning about the copyright infringement the band sent their representative Nargis Kazerooni to India to initiate legal action.
“We demand the music director, producers and directors to refrain from releasing the song in the movie or use it to promote the movie. Failing to do so, the band shall be compelled to initiate proceedings to seek a restraining order and necessary compensation,” the notice states.
Here is the song.
