Originally, Hotnews was a review of the Romanian media. But in 2001, it expanded its coverage to include investigative articles about corruption and related topics. In 2005, the site rebranded itself as Hotnews, and continues to publish news in English and Spanish. The website is no longer operated by the team that started it, however. In March 2018, the editors who founded Hotnews quit to create a new news website, which they called Newsroom.

“Hotnews” doctrine refers to a specific aspect of copyright, which involves legal protection for published works. Specifically, it involves the attribution of clear authorship, and economic value that doesn’t diminish quickly. It applies to written and televised news, which may be complex to analyze and can be subject to claims of infringement. In addition to copyright violations, it is important to understand how “hot news” is defined.

As the plaintiff in Hotnews didn’t prove a prima facie case, the Indian court did not grant an injunction against the news company, despite the plaintiff’s claim of misappropriation. The court noted that the Hot News Doctrine had its first application in India. Its application is a significant step towards protecting the rights of the content creators. However, there are exceptions. This case is not an easy case to decide.
