Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The typical duration of copyright protection is 60 years. With original literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, the 60-year term starts with the author’s death year.


In the case of cinematographic films, sound recordings, images, posthumous publications, anonymous and pseudonymous publications, works of government, and activities of international organisations, the 60 years count from the publication date.

Section 63 of the Copyright Act makes it illegal to violate the copyright of any work. Penalties include a fine of Rs. 50,000 and a term of imprisonment of six months.


Additionally, any police officer not below the level of sub-inspector may, if convinced that a copyright violation has happened or is likely to occur, seize all copies of the work and the plates used to create the infringing copies of the work without a warrant.

  • Reproduction rights

The owner of the copyright receives exclusive rights upon registration. Without the owner of the copyright’s consent, no one may duplicate or copy work.

  • Adaptational Right

The Act permits the author to utilise his creation in any way he sees fit. He is free to produce any variations in his original work. Based on his current production, he may also employ a new format.

  • The Public’s Right to Information

The owner is permitted to make public their original work. The owner of the copyright may employ pictures or other visual cues.

  • Public Performance Rights

Owners of creative works like music and painting can publicly perform their creations. A musician can perform his music for the public, and so can a creator showcase his/her painting. 

The law authorises the use of registered works in libraries, schools, and legislatures and for research, study, criticism, review, and news reporting under certain conditions without the owner’s consent.

  • For evaluation or criticism.
  • Concerning a legal procedure.
  • Performance given by an amateur club/society and witnessed by an unpaid audience.
