Although international OTT platform Amazon Prime is the patent registered intellectual property of Amazon Inc, a group of criminals have already hijacked this world-famous brand name and are claiming to be preparing to launch an “international OTT platform” named ‘Amazon Prime Bangladesh’ under the leadership of a master scammer, cybercriminal, fraud and imposter named Raino Arian Khan alias Mir Asaduzzaman Aryan.
In his Facebook ID, Raino Arian Khan alias Mir Asaduzzaman Aryan announce that from December 15, 2021, he is going to launch an international OTT platform named Amazon Prime Bangladesh and it apps of this platform would be available on Google Playstore.
On September 27, 2021, an individual named Sagar Hasan, uploaded a promotional on his Facebook stating a content titled ‘Kidnap’ is being made for Amazon Prime Bangladesh OTT platform.
According to information, Sagar Hasan claims to be an actor of Jazz Multimedia, a controversial film production company. Abdul Aziz, owner of this company is on run after swindling few billion takas from Janata Bank.
Sagar Hasan, a key accomplice of Raino Arian Khan alias Mir Asaduzzaman Aryan claims himself as a script writer, graphic designer, and assistant director at Bangladesh Film Development Corporation (BFDC). He also claims to be working as the Chief Assistant Director and Actor at Genxt – Generation Next Multimedia International, an unregistered company headed by Aryan and run by other members of his crime racket.
Commenting on the declaration of illegally opening Amazon Prime Bangladesh OTT platform by violating international law, Tajul Islam, Deputy CEO of Crown Entertainment, Bangladesh’s leading content providers and production company said: “During the recent years, Amazon Prime and Netflix along with a number of international and Indian OTT platforms have been increasing gaining popularity in Bangladesh with significant rise in the number of subscribers. Under such circumstance, Kolkata-based OTT platform HoiChoi has already established its own office in Dhaka (Bangladesh), while Zee5 has also appointed a local company as its vendor. But unfortunately, global platforms such as Amazon and Netflix in particular are yet to either have their office in Bangladesh or represented by any local company as agents or vendors. This is a matter of grave risk for those platforms as many locals may illegally use their names and make attempts of cheating local producers, directors and artists. I think, Amazon and Netflix should immediately open their office in this country or appoint representatives”.
Replying to the question if Crown Entertainment is willing to work as the representative of Amazon or Netflix, Tajul Islam said: “If we are approached by either of these global OTT platforms as well as OTT platforms in India, we certainly will extend our professional services to them. It will not only be representing those companies; we also shall protect their copyright in here and provide quality contents at a reasonable price. At the same time, once Crown Entertainment becomes agents of companies like Amazon Prime, Netflix and others, Bangladesh drama and film makers as well as artists and technicians will feel confident in those platforms as our company enjoy high reputation in the country”.
