Copyright is the most enveloping, inclusive and freely accessible intellectual property right. One may go so far as to call it the ‘PEOPLE’S RIGHT’, for the contemporaneous and automatic protection it affords to all original creations. Copyright is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings.
Any original work (in material form) made by a person is eligible for copyright protection. Originality refers to the fact that the author must have created the work through the application of the author’s own creativity and labour. Under Copyright law in India, the copyright is exclusively provided to the creator of the work and specifically provided amongst other rights, the right to prevent others from reproducing, selling or licensing the work.
