Yash Raj Films in a legal trouble for pocketing Rs. 100 crore of royalties

Yash Raj Films in a legal trouble for pocketing Rs. 100 crore of royalties

The complainant claimed the IPRS has the exclusive right to collect royalties on behalf of artists and music producers but the YRF collected it unauthorisedly. "Yash Raj Films Company and its directors allegedly pocketed Rs 100 crore by collecting music royalties of members of the Indian Performing Rights Society (IPRS)," the official said quoting the complaint.

The case has been registered against Yash Raj Films under sections of 409 (criminal breach of trust) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and relevant sections of the Copyright Act, the official added further. "Since this is a legal case the board cant comment about it until tomorrow," a representative of the IPRS explained.
