Fake websites may have been set up withÂ malafideÂ intentions such as to obtain money from members of the public under the pretence of being associated with the programme
May 24, 2012
Star India put out a caution notice yesterday drawing attention of the general public that there is only one official website relating to the programme âSatyamev Jayateâ currently being telecast by the network on its channels including Star Plus.
The only âofficial websiteâ for âSatyamev Jayateâ is accessible through the URL:Â www.satyamevjayate.in, and is currently hosted and maintained by Star India. Any other website claiming to be associated with âSatyamev Jayateâ is doing so without the authorisation of either Star India or Aamir Khan Productions Pvt Ltd (AKPPL) which has produced âSatyamev Jayateâ.
Neither Star India nor AKPPL has given permission to any entity or person to set up, host, or operate any website associated with âSatyamev Jayateâ or to use any of the trademarks, logos, or trade names associated with the programme or owned by Star India, AKPPL or any of the sponsors/partners of the programme, the statement said.
The press statement mentioned that various âfake websitesâ have been set up in relation to the programme âSatyamev Jayateâ, which may even have an identical look and feel as the official website. For example, a fake website accessible through the URLÂ http://satyamevjayateindia.org/ imitates the appearance of the official website of âSatyamev Jayateâ, as does one available atÂ satyamev-jayate.in.
Fake websites such asÂ http://satyamevjayateindia.org/ andÂ satyamev-jayate.in may have been set up withÂ malafide intentions such as to obtain money from members of the general public under the false pretence of being associated with the programme âSatyamev Jayateâ, Star India has cautioned.
The statement further said: âAs such, we caution all members of the public (1) not to have any dealings with any fake website includingÂ http://satyamevjayateindia.org/andÂ satyamev-jayate.in, (2) not to rely on any information available at any fake website includingÂ http://satyamevjayateindia.org/ andsatyamev-jayate.in, and (3) not to deal with any person associated with any fake website, and/or (4) not to deal with any person claiming to be associated (whether directly or indirectly) with Star India or AKPPL or the programme âSatyamev Jayateâ through any fake website or otherwise. Any member of the public who has any such dealings shall engage in them entirely at their own risk, and neither Star India nor AKPPL shall be responsible or liable for the same in any manner.â
