COPY RIGHTS

Copyrights

“Without copyright law,art wouldn’t exist!”

Copyright law protects expression of ideas, and not the ideas themselves. Copyright refers to a bunch of exclusive rights vested in the owner. These rights can be exercised by the Copyright owner, or any personnel duly authorized by the owner.

Apart from the Economic Rights that accrue from this, the Moral Rights vested in the Copyright owner are inalienable. The owner can exercise these rights even when it is assigned to another party.

Copyright subsists in the original works of LDMA:
  1. Literature
  2. Drama
  3. Music
  4. Art
Cinematographic content, sound recordings, and computer programs also get the protection of Copyrights. Neighboring Rights are inclusive of Broadcasting Rights and also extends to cover in its purview the Performers’ Rights. The general term of Copyrights is 60 years.
