Delhi HC directs Google, Facebook to block 25 websites for using ‘Aaj Tak’ trademark misleading users

The Delhi High Court single directed Google and Facebook to block 25 different websites, accounts and pages accused of infringing the “Aaj Tak” trademark and misleading the users into believing that these “anonymous” websites are somehow related to the Aaj Tak brand.

The order from the Delhi High Court will protect a news brand against fake news and fake screen grabs which have led to rampant disinformation being circulated in public in the name of news, especially during the pandemic.
