BARBARA TAYLOR BRADFORD LOSES INDIAN COPYRIGHT CLAIM

Barbara Taylor Bradford has lost her copyright claim against Sahara TV and has been fined 150,00 rupees for every week that she held up the screening of the defendant’s television series. The author claimed that the television company had plagiarised her novel A Woman of Substance in its 260 part soap Karishma, The Miracle of Destiny. However, the court said that Taylor Bradford could not have a monopoly on the idea of a woman’s rags-to-riches story.
