The recent verdict given by the Hon’ble Delhi High Court in Sholay Media Entertainment & Ors. v. Yogesh Patel & Ors.[i] cements the legality behind awarding trademark registration to film titles. The Court also acknowledged the fact that a common man will easily associate the title SHOLAY with the movie’s iconic characters, scenes, songs, etc. Accordingly, the Defendants were held liable for trademark infringement for using the title SHOLAY for their website.
