The Delhi High Court has ordered YouTube to remove from its platform, 2 songs posted by Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie.
On April 8, Justice Jayant Nath in an interim order said that the order should be followed within two weeks. He continued, “In my opinion, it would be in the interest of justice that these videos are taken off by YouTube.”

PewDiePie has issued a notice over the lawsuit filed by T-Series owner Super Cassettes Pvt Ltd. It has also listed the issue for furthering hearing on July 15.
In its petition, T-Series has sought that Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, popular as PewDiePie, be restrained permanently from uploading the songs titled as “T-Series Diss Track/Bitch Lasagna”, and “Congratulations”.
Super Cassettes informed that the court lyrics of songs were offensive and defamatory in nature. It also contains inflammatory, racist, and hateful remarks against the Indian community underestimated T-Series and its trademark as well.
