Drama... (about distribution rights)

Post by thunder » Wed Mar 06, 2019 4:45 pm

A firm based in Dubai (Plus Holdnings) is trying to stop Netflix from releasing the movie in India, claiming they have distribution rights to it. I don't know if that means it can be deleayed other places as well... but from what I understand, it's only India, so far. :scratch

It sounds like the releases in India and Southeast Asia are in question. It doesn't mention Europe except for the UK.

I think it was only the Netflix release in India. :scratch

Well, thunder, I guess we'll hear more about this (with better details) while it runs through the courts? :scratch

I'm not sure, but I think Netflix decided not to fight back...
