Court case against Nehaflix[edit]

IndiaWeekly sued its competitor Nehaflix for an amount in excess of a million dollars in the U.S. Federal Court alleging that they hacked into their computer system and stole its trade secrets.[2] After a lawsuit which involved more than 250 court filings and which lasted around five years, IndiaWeekly finally got the website to be permanently shut down in a settlement.[2]

In April 2011, IndiaWeekly received a favorable ruling from a senior US District Judge Melancon Tucker, who ordered that all Yahoo records of Nehaflix for 2002 to present, including all customer records be handed over to counsels of IndiaWeekly.[3] [4] A document from Yahoo that was produced as a result of a subpoena issued to them by IndiaWeekly stated that Yahoo records contained over 150,000 customer orders that was received via website[2] IndiaWeekly received all of these customer records in the settlement.[2]
