Tata vs turtle game not to be banned: Delhi HC

Greenpeace has been campaigning against the Tatas’ port project in Orissa


Neha Sethi | January 28, 2011

The Delhi high court on Friday refused to grant an interim injunction to Tata sons against Greenpeace’s India’s ‘Turtle vs Tata’ online game. As part of its public awareness campaign, Greenpeace had created the Pacman-inspired game in 2010, which caricatured the Tata Group trademark, inviting its wrath.

The green NGO has been campaigning against the Tatas’ port project in Orissa. It claims that the port poses a threat to the turtles and other wildlife. Tata Sons filed a law suit against Greenpeace in the Delhi High Court, alleging defamation and trademark infringement, and seeking damages of Rs 10 crore.

Greenpeace has claimed that documents obtained last month by it under the Right to Information (RTI) Act have revealed that environment minister Jairam Ramesh had agreed that the port was in probable violation of the Forest Conservation Act, but decided to overlook the issue, contradicting senior officers of the ministry in doing so.

The Delhi high court will continue to hear the case for damages filed by the Tata group before a regular bench, with the next hearing on February 21.
