The judges remarked that it was most unfortunate that a part of the film industry uses others' concepts, but refuses to pay or give credit. Patnaik had sought a stay on the film's release until he was given credit for the concept of the futuristic superhero that Khan plays in Ra.One. He also sought 10% of the profits, in case he was not given credit. Appearing for Patnaik, senior counsel Ravi Kadam contended that the superhero character resembled the one in Patnaik's concept drawn out in 2006. The antagonist in Patnaik's script was called 'One', a term used in the movie's title, Kadam pointed out.
Khan's counsel Virendra Tulzapurkar countered that Khan's script was totally different. "Patnaik cannot claim copyright as he had developed his concept with a team of experts he had engaged," Tulzapurkar argued. Distributor Eros Entertainment's lawyer advocate Janak Dwarkadas said that Eros had acquired world distribution rights at Rs150 crore and started transporting prints to theatres. No stay should be granted at the last moment, he said.
