Abstract

The Copyright Act was enacted for the purpose of the making author’s work available to the public by issue of copies or by communicating the work to the public. Copyright means where the exclusive right is given to the author to do or authorise the doing of any of certain things under section 14 of the Copyright Act. The act makes it clear that no person shall be entitled to copyright or any similar right in any work, whether published or unpublished unless otherwise expressly provided. The researcher highlight the debate of copyright whether copyright does more harm than good. The researcher explain the relevant provisions of section 13, 14 and 16 relating to the Act; also the relevant hon’ble Supreme Court Judgements in this regard. The researchers express the view that the copyright laws in theory are important and should be strictly enforced but the current laws are excessive in the length of granting time protection. Copyright protection should be more similar to patent protection, maybe just a few years more. Copyright owners should not be deprived of the basic rights to claim ownership to works they have created. By eliminating copyright laws altogether will diminishes the incentive to create and innovate the work; but also there is no reason to encourage a generation who possess a false sense of entitlement of copyright claims.
