unauthorized use of mobile number in a film
Options available to you:
1. Change your Number - service provider will be glad to oblige.
2. Action against Movie / Producer etc.
2.1 Seek Beeping / Blacking out of 5 digits in the movie - expensive, but easy to do for the Producer.
2.2 Seek Monetary compensation - depending on the success of the movie, anything from 1 - 5 Lakhs is the max you can get. If you handle it properly, this should be the easiest route.
2.3 Civil Judicial Action - Expensive and Time consuming, limited effectiveness.
2.3.1 Seek Cease & Desist on screening / online availability of the Movie - Unlikely to succeed in court.
2.3.2 Seek monetary compensation - net gain to you (post costs) will be less than #2.2, Indian courts don't provide compensation for mental agony etc.
2.4 Criminal Action - NO Criminal action can be pursued - the inclusion of a random number cannot be deemed to be mala fide / with intent to cause injury / damage - as such outside criminal law. more
Not only seeking Compensation but penal actions as well. more
