Copyright Act in India redefined by adding Internet broadcasting also into the act. Earlier only Radio & Television Broadcasting are under the purview of the act. But now the entire communication medium changes in the internet world.
Internet broadcasting is also included
Various audio, video streaming sites like Youtube, Gaana, Raaga became a crucial part of the entertainment industry. In recent times an enormous volume of copyright-related cases is rising in the country.
We are living in the age of Internet broadcasting, for the end users they don’t bother about who have the rights for which content, but for the musicians, artists, and the content creators is becoming hurting that people copies their hard work without any credits and royalties.
Now onwards Section 31D of the Copyright Act 1957 applies to the Internet broadcasting also. Original artists, musicians, and other content creators are going to get royalties for their work with the latest amendment to the Indian Copyright Act.
Those days when copying others content without any credits are gone, now after Internet broadcasting added into the Indian Copyright Act one must face severe legal issues when they try to copy others content.
