I&B Ministry to seek transfer of OTT cases to Supreme Court: Report

After bringing OTT platforms under the ambit of the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) ministry, the government is planning to file a plea that seeks to bring all the court cases in India against OTT platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar to the Supreme Court. The government had already informed the Punjab and Haryana high court about its move. The government had announced that all digital media platforms, including news media and online curated content providers (OCCPs), would fall under the information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry, many fear that this could spell doom for India’s high-flying video OTT space.
