Over copyright issues on Sinhala movie

 

By T. Farook Thajudeen

Popular film conserver Tissa Nagodawithana and Movie Producers and Importers Ltd. yesterday filed their objections against the restraining order issued on them from preventing screening or telecasting the movie titled “Sujatha”.

  

The defendants by the objection had claimed that the defendant will not accept that the plaintiff was the lawful owner to the copyright to the film “Sujatha” since it had never formed a part of the testamentary proceedings filed before the District Court and the case is pending in the District Court without any order.  Counsel Dhanya Gunawardena appearing for the first and the second defendants said that the defendants position was that the economic rights of the film belongs to the company where the first defendant is a Director and said that the film never formed a part of the testamentary proceedings filed before the District Court. 

 
He said the owner of the film K. Gunartnam had duly transferred the rights, especially the economic rights of the film to the company where the first defendant is the Director himself.
