For months, PewDiePie and the T-Series Indian music brand have been fighting for the first place on YouTube. There were some cases in which T-Series was able to overtake PewDiePie and, in the last case where the T series beat PewDiePie, it seemed like the battle was over. PewDiePie acknowledged the defeat by launching a song called "Congratulations" to congratulate the T-Series for his victory.
Since its publication a little over a week ago, PewDiePie's Congratulations song has become one of YouTube's most watched videos of all time, accumulating more than 76 million views and counting. Of course, PewDiePie has once again surpassed the T-Series once again in the race to 100 million subscribers, so the premise of the song is outdated, but nevertheless remained popular.
The T series was offended at Congratulations, which has undergone a certain controversy for implying that T-Series collaborates with the "Indian Mafia" and points out that the T series began its business selling pirated songs. This led T-Series to file a lawsuit in an attempt to eliminate the PewDiePie Congratulations song from YouTube, with the Supreme Court of Delhi at the end of the T series.
The Supreme Court of Delhi justified its decision saying that the PewDiePie Congratulations song is "defamatory, contemptuous, insulting, and offensive." "
As a result of the court's decision, PewDiePie's Congratulations song is blocked in India. However, the song remains basically available throughout the world, and it is unlikely to be blocked in other regions. However, future legal actions could change this.
Now that the series T vs PewDiePie dispute has been knocked down in the courts, it will be interesting to see what will happen next. Maybe PewDiePie is publishing another song in response, or maybe stop making songs about T-Series to avoid the risk of future legal actions. In any case, it is clear that the dispute between PewDiePie and T-Series is far from over as the 100 million subscribers race continues.
