The Delhi High Court has asked YouTube to remove 2 songs that are posted by PewDiePie from its platform.
On 8th April, Justice Jayant Nath said that the order is expected to be fulfilled within 2 weeks, he said, “In my opinion, it would be in the interest of justice that these videos are taken off by YouTube.”
The Delhi High Court has also requested YouTube to ensure that the 2 songs should not get uploaded on their platform again.
A notice was given out to PewDiePie after a lawsuit was filed by the owner of T-Series. The next hearing for the case is set on July 15, 2019.
In the plea filed by T-Series, the company said that PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, should be banned from re-uploading songs that currently have the title of “Congratulations” and “T-Series Diss Track/Bitch Lasagna”.
T-Series said that the lyrics of the 2 songs are defamatory and are racist.
Tracks “Congratulations” and “T-Series Diss Track/Bitch Lasagna” contain racist remarks against the Indian community and to the company itself.
T-Series claims that PewDiePie uploaded the music videos to stay as the most-subscribed channel on Youtube.
But as of now, T-Series is the most-subscribed channel on YouTube.
The court also said that after PewDiePie posted the first song video, he sent an apology letter to T-Series, in which he said “it was all in good fun” and added that he is “not planning any more videos on the same lines.”
But on March 31, he posted a new song that made racist remarks against the company and the people of India.
