High Court’s statement

“It is a landmark judgment on three counts – injunction which upholds the privacy of a child; an injunction against disseminating false and fake news about a child that is harmful to a child, and against defamation,” said lawyer Ameet Naik, who represented Abhishek Bachchan in the High Court. The court has stated that intermediaries should have a zero-tolerance policy on such fake news that is harmful to children, similar to that for child pornography. Children must be treated equally, whether they are celebrities or not. Other than that, in its structure, the court has likewise coordinated with Google/YouTube to provide subtleties about the infringers, for example, contact numbers, email ids, and so on.

It is anticipated that the current judgement will be the first of its kind to protect the rights of a celebrity’s minor child.
