the Murphy radio was an iconic part of growing up pre 80s. Like amul the murphy baby is part of the pop culture here. This is great PR for this dying international brand and may be they will get a few quid as well. They need it, we didn't know they existed anymore!

    The fact that the Director admits having used the "brand in a positive light" in itself is an admission of infringement. Using the brand's name in a positive or negative way is irrelevant here however, the act of using the baby and the brand in the film contravene the act. This is why productions companies employ legal teams nowadays because copyright issues are on the rise in show business. This is not just in India but in show business across the globe. I am surprised that they used the brand without a no objection certificate; this incident highlights the production's house unprofessionalism.

    Bollywood is making big money these days that's why the international markets are coming at them hard with the copyright infringement clause like never before.

    SOOOO TRUE!

    Bollywood, and Indian markets are making so much that international brands are jealous.
    India has the most buying power second to china.
