T-Series, a music and entertainment company based in India has sued Google for unauthorized projection of music video and other clips on YouTube. The sources reveal that song sequels from latest Bollywood movies produced by T-Series are open for public viewing on Google's YouTube.

A report published by Business Standard informs:
According to sources close to the development, certain videos and sound tracks of T-Series’ latest movies, including Don and Jaan-e-mann, were available for downloads at Youtube.  This has enabled distributors and others to make illegal copies of the video clips and movies and sell these cheap in the domestic market.  T-Series alleges to have incurred a loss of around Rs 100 crore and is seeking compensation for the amount through a petition filed with the Delhi High Court.

Few days back news surfaced that music and entertainment giant Viacom has sued Google seeking $1 billion in damages.
