Snippet: Aamir Khan’s show “Satyamev Jayate” in Copyright trouble

Aamir Khan’s show, Satyamev Jayate, which I personally found extremely relevant and riveting, finds itself in copyright trouble. Popular physician-turned-singer Palash Sen has alleged that the title song of the show is similar to a track from Sen’s  popular album “Phir Dhoom”.

Here’s a youtube video where both numbers have been compared, and frankly one does not find much merit in the allegation. The allegation does not seem to satisfy the requirement of substantial reproduction, which forms an essential ingredient of infringement. We’ll keep our readers posted on the developments in the controversy.
