Description:

Supreme mission of the copyright law has been to motivate the creation of intellectual works for public welfare resulting enrichment of public at large and to secure economic recognition for those who are affianced in the thought creation process and in the creative works dissemination process. However, due to global recognition and value addition to copyrighted works, it has been comparable with industries, which can earn by exploiting the intellectual works of creators. Today, copyright has been moving from an author’s concern to the concept of ‘industrial property’ resulting change of role of copyright which becomes indispensable overshadowing the limitations imposed upon, in the name of limited monopoly. It has, nowadays, converted into a substantial contributor of the state revenue. In this book landmark judicial verdicts have been analysed to trace the principles of law evolved; to find out the areas of rampant infringement of copyright for which the creators/owners as well as investors are scantily suffering throughout the globe; and finally to reach out the possible ways to combat the infringement of copyright to promote wholehearted and unrestricted global creative works.
