Gangs of Wasseypur gets a John Doe order
The Bombay High Court has passed its first unconditional John Doe order for Anurag Kashyap's upcoming film Gangs of Wasseypur against all defendants limiting them from distributing copies of the film through any means without a license from its producer.
Kashyap says he isn't responsible for the decision and blocking of websites.
'The order has been taken by investing parties to protect their investment but they have assured me that it will be used responsibly and I can argue with them about not taking down entire sites and just the URL's and they have assured they will do that, beyond that I actually have no say in the matter legally as its not my money ,but whole sites getting blocked should not happen because of GoW,i will fight fr that. And i have been told that now all studios are taking that order for all releases.'
He justified his stand and added: 'When my films were pirated my investors and studio never blamed me for it but when the studio got a JD order for Gow, the internet blames me. Whatever has to happen it will happen. I am proud of the film i have made n rest i am not going to reply to any accusations of the JD order. FYI so the John Doe orders are taken before every film for last one year and only once in case of 3 were the torrents blocked.'
