Copyright-CutOut2

Copyright, one of the Intellectual Property Rights is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. In fact, it is a bundle of rights including, inter-alia, rights of reproduction, communication to the public, adaptation and translation of the work. There could be slight variations in the composition of the rights depending on the work. The Copyright Act provides that a copyright subsists in an original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, cinematograph films, and sound recordings. The Copyright Act, 1957 is the oldest extant intellectual property legislation in India. The Act has been amended five times, prior to 2012, once each in the years 1983, 1984,1992, 1994 and 1999 to meet with the national and international requirements.
