YouTube Temporary For Live-Streaming Proceeding, Will Have Own Platform: SC


New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said it will have its own “platform” to live-stream its proceedings and the use of YouTube for the purpose is temporary.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Uday Umesh Lalit said this when former BJP leader K N Govindacharya’s counsel argued that the copyright of apex court proceedings cannot be surrendered to private platforms like YouTube.

“YouTube has clearly sought the copyright over the webcast,” lawyer Virag Gupta told the bench that also comprised Justices S Ravindra Bhat and J B Pardiwala.

“These are the initial stages. We will certainly have our own platforms…We will take care of that (copyright issue),” the CJI said and listed Govindacharya’s interim plea for hearing on October 17.
