OVERVIEW- COPYRIGHT

Copyrights safeguard original creations like books, music, plays, dance routines, sculptures, pictures, graphics, recorded sounds, art, architecture, and software. When someone owns the copyright, they have the sole rights to change, share, perform, make new versions, showcase, and copy the work.

Copyright in India is governed by the Copyright Act of 1957, which has undergone several amendments to adapt to changing times. According to this Act, copyright protection extends for the lifetime of the author plus an additional 60 years after their death. Copyright and related rights apply to cultural goods, products, and services that stem from individual or collective creativity. All original intellectual creations that are expressed in a reproducible form are considered “works eligible for copyright protection.

The copyright laws in India distinguish between various categories of works, including literary, artistic, musical works, sound recordings, and cinematograph films. The protection granted by copyright is not dependent on the quality of the work and remains applicable even if it deviates significantly from accepted forms of literature or art.

ELIGIBILITY OF COPYRIGHTS

  • Originality: The work must be original, meaning it is the result of the author’s own intellectual effort and creativity. It should not be a direct copy or imitation of someone else’s work.
  • Fixation: The work must be fixed in a tangible form, such as written on paper, recorded in a digital format, or captured in a physical medium. It should be in a form that can be perceived, reproduced, or communicated.
  • Literary, Artistic, or Intellectual Character: Copyrights protect various types of works, including literary works (e.g., books, articles, poems), artistic works (e.g., paintings, sculptures, photographs), musical works, dramatic works (e.g., plays, scripts), architectural works, sound recordings, cinematographic films, computer programs, and more. The work should fall within one or more of these categories.
  • Minimum Threshold of Creativity: The work should possess a minimum level of creativity or originality. While the threshold for creativity is generally low, the work must display some degree of individual effort and not be merely a factual or mechanical reproduction.

ADVATNAGES

  • Protection of Intellectual Property: Copyrights provide legal protection for original works of authorship, safeguarding the rights of creators. This protection ensures that creators have exclusive control over the use and distribution of their works, preventing unauthorized copying, distribution, or exploitation.
  • Economic Incentives for Creativity: Copyrights encourage creativity and innovation by providing creators with economic incentives. The exclusive rights granted by copyrights enable creators to monetize their works through licensing, sales, or other commercial arrangements. This encourages continued artistic and intellectual endeavors.
  • Recognition and Attribution: Copyrights help ensure that creators receive recognition and attribution for their works. Copyright ownership allows creators to be identified as the original authors, protecting their reputations and integrity.
  • Financial Rewards and Income Generation: Copyrights enable creators to earn financial rewards from their works. By controlling the reproduction, distribution, and public performance of their works, creators can derive income through licensing agreements, royalties, sales, or other revenue streams.
  • Promotes Cultural Diversity and Progress: Copyrights support a diverse range of artistic and cultural expressions. They foster the creation of new works, contribute to cultural development, and promote the progression of society by encouraging the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
  • Legal Recourse and Enforcement: Copyrights provide creators with legal recourse against infringement and unauthorized use of their works. Copyright owners can take legal action against individuals or entities that violate their rights, seeking remedies such as injunctions, damages, or other appropriate relief.

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR REGISTERED COPYRIGHTS

  • Application Form: Most copyright offices provide a specific application form that needs to be filled out. The form typically requires details such as the title of the work, authorship information, publication information, and other relevant details.
  • Work to Be Copyrighted: A copy or representation of the work being registered may be required. This could include a manuscript, recording, artwork, or other tangible form of the work.
  • Proof of Authorship: Depending on the jurisdiction, you may need to provide proof of authorship, such as a declaration or affidavit stating that you are the original creator of the work. This may require your signature or the signature of a duly authorized representative.
  • Power of Attorney or Vakalatnama (if applicable): If you are filing the copyright application through an attorney or authorized agent, a Power of Attorney or Vakalatnama granting them the authority to act on your behalf may be required.
  • Fee Payment: Most copyright offices require payment of a filing fee. The fee amount will vary depending on the jurisdiction and the type of work being registered.
  • Additional Documentation (if applicable): Depending on the nature of the work, additional documentation may be required. For example, for works of architecture, technical drawings or plans may need to be submitted.

VALIDITY PERIODS OF COPYRIGHTS

  • Individual Creators: For works created by individual authors, such as literary, artistic, musical, and dramatic works, the copyright usually lasts for the lifetime of the author plus a certain number of years after their death. The additional years after the author’s death are known as the posthumous period. In many countries, the posthumous period is set at 50 or 70 years, but it can vary.
  • Anonymous or Pseudonymous Works: For works published anonymously or under a pseudonym, the copyright duration is often the same as for individual creators. It is typically measured from the year of publication or the year of creation, depending on the jurisdiction.
  • Corporate or Joint Works: In the case of works created by corporations or works that involve joint authorship, the duration of copyright is usually determined by the specific laws of the jurisdiction. It may be a fixed term, such as a specific number of years from the date of publication or creation.
  • Cinematographic Films and Sound Recordings: Copyright protection for cinematographic films (movies) and sound recordings generally has a separate duration. In many countries, the duration is set at 50 or 70 years from the year of publication or the year of creation.

PROCESS

The registration process follows the following steps:

  • Submission of Application: The applicant needs to complete the application for registration in Form IV, as specified in the first schedule of the Rules. The application must be accompanied by the necessary fees, as prescribed in the second schedule of the Rules.
  • Individual Work Applications: It is important to submit separate applications for the registration of each work. This means that each work should have its own dedicated application for registration.
  • Signatures and Authorization: The applications must be signed either by the applicant themselves or by an advocate who holds a Vakalatnama or Power of Attorney executed in their favor. The Vakalatnama or Power of Attorney should be attached to the application form as supporting documentation.
