Amitabh Bachchan’s name, voice, picture can’t be used without permission: Delhi High Court


Actor Amitabh Bachchan has filed a suit in the Delhi High Court against the world at large, seeking protection of his name, image, voice and personalit­y attributes. Lawyer Harish Salve appeared for the star.

The suit stated that Bachchan’s name, image and voice were being used by mobile applicatio­n developers to conduct lotteries by illegally associatin­g with Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). Justice Navin Chawla on Friday passed an interim order restrainin­g persons at large from infringing Bachchan’s personalit­y and publicity rights: “Having considered the plaint, I am of the opinion that a prima facie case is made out and the balance of convenienc­e also lies in his favour.”
