Ilaiyaraaja Files Police Case


A representative for Ilaiyaraaja has registered a police complaint against music companies for defying court orders and continuing to illegally sell songs of the music composer. Earlier this year, the Madras High Court restrained Agi Music Pvt Ltd, EchoRecording Company Pvt Ltd, Unisys Info Solution Pvt Ltd, Agi Music and Giri Trading Company from ‘manufacturing, selling, distributing or in any manner infringing his exclusive right under the Copyright Act, 1957 to deal with sound recording composed by Ilaiyaraaja’.

Despite this, the companies still continued to sell the work of the legendary music director.

A spokesperson for Ilaiyaraaja told us that the police have begun investigating the case, and that they hope the outcome will be a favourable one.
