VISHAKAPATNAM — Women’s associations, led by All India Democratic Women Association (AIDWA), on Saturday protested in Visakhapatam against filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma over his new film ‘God, Sex and Truth’.

Women shouted slogans against Varma, and burned his effigy at the GVMC Gandhi statue in the coastal city, ANI reported.

Varma has shared the trailer of his upcoming adult film with porn star Mia Malkova called ‘God, Sex and Truth’.

The protesters also accused the director of using abusive words against women in one of his recent interviews with a Telugu TV news channel.

Mahila Morcha, the women’s wing of the BJP has also demanded a ban on the film, as state executive member, K Nagalakshmi, filed a complaint in Vijayawada with the Suryaraopet police.

The Mahila Morcha leader demanded to know, “What was the message Varma would be giving to the youth in India with his dirty film.”

The protesters demanded that police should arrest him and ban the film’s release and its trailers on social media.

The film has been in the news ever since RGV shared some posters of the same on social media featuring the lead actress and pornstar Mia Malkova.

The film was shot in Europe and its trailer was launched last week. The full film will be launched on Republic Day, January 26.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
