Man Vs. Wild fame Bear Grylls in legal trouble?: Read the whole story here!
The high court even ordered the defendants to submit written statements and set February 22, 2023, for the case’s next hearing.
All our childhood, we have known Bear Grylls as a wild survivor, but how will he fight this legal battle?
The Delhi High Court on Friday issued summonses to the British adventurer and television presenter Bear Grylls and others in response to a copyright infringement action filed by an Indian writer and producer, Arrmann Shharma, an Indian screenplay writer, over the show “Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls.” Arrmann Shharma filed a lawsuit alleging that the television programme “Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls” violated his copyright in the original literary work. The suit also demanded damages and a permanent injunction barring the defendants from violating the Indian author’s copyright.
Aakhri Dum Takk, a show that Arrmann Shharma created and scripted in 2009 and submitted to Discovery, was denied and the Indian scriptwriter was then told that “the script did not fulfil its programming and inventory requirements”. According to the reports, the court has further ordered mediation after Grylls’ attorney asked for it.
Other defendants were served summonses by Justice Amit Bansal, including NBC Universal Inc. and Vice President Tom Shelly, Warner Brothers Discovery, OTT service Hotstar, The Walt Disney Company, and Net Geo India. The high court even ordered the defendants to submit written statements and set February 22, 2023, for the case’s next hearing.
