The Hollywood Reporter's Hollywood, Esq. blog reports that SCG (Saban Capital Group) Power Rangers, the company that owns the rights to the Power Rangers franchise filed a lawsuit against Kunal Kandpal, a woman who allegedly uploaded videos of the recently-aired first episode of Power Rangers Super Samurai to YouTube.

SCG Power Rangers filed a takedown notice with the video streaming website, but Kandpal, who is believed to be living in India, reportedly filed a counter-notice reading:

"This video is my private Property n u cn see hw many views i get on this video people are requesting me to upload more of this video, so please get clear who the hell is jealous of my video and trying to removie it frm YouTube. [sic] I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief the material was removed due to a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled..."

"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
