India Today restrained by court on website

The Madras High Court stopped the India Today group from naming its website , on the grounds that it is similar to the web site of a Chennai-based newspaper, News Today.

Judge Prabha Sridevan was ruling on an appeal filed on Wednesday by News Today editor and proprietor T R Jawahar to restrain the India Today group from using its domain name. India Today had announced the launching of its website last week.

Counsel for News Today, submitted before the court that their newspaper was started by T R Ramaswami 18 years ago. Over the years, it has built up a great deal of goodwill among not only the people of Tamil Nadu but also Pondicherry and Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, where it is distributed every day. It is also supplied to Indian Airline and Jet Airways flights that originate from Chennai.

The newspaper was registered on March 26, 1983 with the Registrar of Newspapers in India. It also has its own website,'. It argued before the court that the India Today website was nothing but an attempt to "confuse" readers.

The newspaper said it had sent a legal notice to India Today about the confusing domain name and urging it not to use a similar name but had not received any response so far.
