We prepare research reports on indian companies and sell it through our website as paid subscriptions. we create such reports in Mumbai. The infringer copies such reports and sells it to his subscribers as its own. He is doing this by emails from Kolkata. So where according to you copyright is infringed. At Mumbai or Kolkata?
Our webservers are in Mumbai in which the data is stored.
Dear Malav, it is better if U file suit claiming injunction and compensation for violation of copyright in the District Court of Kolkata. I dont think this will come under the IT Act, as IT Act only deals with the crimes like hacking, spams,cyberstalking, etc.
the jurisdiction for copyright violation cases differs from other kind of litigation. in case of copyright violation, case can be filed at the place of business or residence of the plaintiff/complainant. in your case, complaint can be filed at Mumbai and there is no need to file it at Kolkata. You can contact us for filing the case and complaint. we have extensively worked on cases of copyright violation. we can be contacted at email@example.com
I have similar questions and I appreciate your suggestion. Can Petitioner located in USA file a Copyright suit in District Court where the Respondents are located? Does US company has any jurisdiction to file a Copyright case in India?
