Super Cassettes Industries (T-Series) has issued legal notices to a host of websites, including MSN, MySpace, Guruji and BharatStudent for copyright infringement. Earlier, the music company had sued YouTube and Yahoo for similar reasons, seeking a permanent injunction for the alleged dissemination and display of its copyright content on Yahoo Video and YouTube.

Anurag Dod, founder and CEO, Guruji.com, has said, “Yes, we have received a notice from T-Series, but we are doing nothing that is outside the purview of any search engine. The ‘music search’ function on the site leads the user to songs that he or she could have accessed using any other search engine or directly from the website. We aren’t hosting any of this content. So T-Series needs to tell us exactly what infringement we’re supposedly guilty of.”

Neeraj Kalyan, VP, digital content, T-Series, has said, “It is my view that anyone who facilitates or provides a platform for others to upload illegal content that has been acquired without paying is equally guilty of the crime of copyright theft.” [Source: Economic Times]
