In India, the Copyright Act, 1957 is the primary legislation governing copyright law. It provides protection to original literary, artistic, musical, and dramatic works, as well as cinematographic films, sound recordings, and computer programs. The Act grants exclusive rights to creators and owners of copyrighted works and establishes the framework for their protection and enforcement.
Copyright, on the other hand, does not protect ideas, names, or titles. The goal of copyright law in India is to allow copyright registrants to receive monetary compensation for their work, so encouraging future innovation and the generation of new material that benefits us all. Without copyright protection, it is frequently quite easy for others to use work without paying the originator. As a result, most uses of copyright material require permission from the copyright holder. However, there are copyright exceptions, so certain minuscule usage may not result in copyright infringements.
Copyright protection is effective as soon as there is a record of the item in any form. The Indian Copyright Act includes a provision for copyright registration; however, it is optional.
