We all have the right to privacy thanks to the law. However, it seems the more well-known you are the less people care about your privacy. So, it’s little surprise that the media is flooded with stories with celebrities battling against companies and institutions to defend their right of privacy and copyrights. Recently, singer Abrar Ul Haq got caught up in a media storm of copyright and privacy law. The Indian movie JugJugg Jeeyo features Abrar Ul Haq’s biggest hit Nach Punjaban as one of the movie’s party number. The singer claims that he did not sell or give permission to anyone to use his original soundtrack. Taking it to twitter, Abrar Ul Haq said, "I have not sold my song Nach Punjaban to any Indian movie and reserve the rights to go to court to claim damages. Producers like Karan Johar should not use copy songs. This is my sixth song being copied which will not be allowed at all." Over this, record label Move Box tweeted, “Nach Panjaban has been officially licensed for it to be included in the Film JugJugg Jeeyo by @TSeries. @karanjohar & @DharmaMovies have the legal rights to use this song in their film and the tweet by @AbrarUlHaqPK earlier today is defamatory and completely unacceptable.”
