SaReGaMa claims copyright violation by Doordarshan telecast of Armed Forces musical band performance of Saare Jahan Se Achha on Independence Day

Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi Vempati has requested Google India and music companies to look into the issue.

On the occasion of 74th Independence Day, the state-owned Doordarshan uploaded live band performances of the men and women in uniform on their social media accounts including YouTube. Prasar Bharati CEO Shashi S Vempati was disappointed to learn that DD National’s channel on YouTube received a copyright strike for uploading the said video in which the bands played patriotic songs.

In his tweet, Vempati wrote, ” Disappointed to see that live musical band performances by the Armed Forces produced by Doordarshan have been copyright claimed by commercial musical entities on the @/ddnational YouTube channel”.

He added that it is ethically and morally wrong on the music companies’ side to raise a claim on the patriotic songs played by the Tri-services bands. “As an example what is the basis for SareGaMa to claim copyright on “Saare Jahan Se Accha” performance by the Tri-services band?” he said.

Vempati requested both music entities and Google India to look into the matter.
