The Delhi High Court has issued a dynamic injunction order restraining publication or republication of the contents of certain defamatory articles against EbixCash and Ebix (Nasdaq:Ebix), by US- based Viceroy Research Group, Fraser Perring and other principals of Viceroy.

The court also directed the Times Group's  ET Prime, to take down an article  published July 31, 2019, since the article was largely based on statements made by Viceroy. The order also directed all the defendants including Viceroy, Fraser and all its principals not to publish any such content themselves or through their affiliates or agents or any other person acting on their behalf.

The issuance of a dynamic injunction by the Delhi High court is to be specially noted as a it implies that the next time any media or publication quotes Viceroy or Fraser or any of the contents of the banned piece by Delhi High court - “Goodwill hunting”; EbixCash will not need to approach the judge but just to reach out to the Registrar of court for taking down any such new article. 

Delhi High Court had earlier issued an order on 8th May 2019, directing Twitter and Google to take down certain articles published by Viceroy Research Group.

In May 2019, EbixCash had approached the High Court with a plea that Viceroy Research Group had published certain articles on its website which contained defamatory information about the former. EbixCash had alleged that Viceroy Research, which holds “short selling” positions in the company and its sister concerns, was using these defamatory articles to drive down the price of the company, and thereby making profit from it.
