    India is a Signatory of Berne Convention

    Berne Convention's primary function is protection of original works and legal rights of their authors/ creators.

    The Foundation of Berne Convention is based on three basic principles and mentions a series of rules determining the minimum protection to be granted.

    The three basic principles are the following:
    (1) Works originating in one of the Contracting Country must be given the same protection in each of the other Contracting countries as the latter grants to the works of its own nationals (principle of national treatment).

    (2) Protection is not conditional upon compliance with any formality, rather it is automatic

    (3) Protection is independent of the existence of protection in the country of origin of the work. If, however, a Contracting Country provides for a longer term of protection than the minimum prescribed by the Convention and the work ceases to be protected in the country of origin, protection may be denied once protection in the country of origin ceases.

    The Copyright law provides for Protection to Foreign Works in India

    Copyrighted creative works of foreign nationals, whose countries are members of Berne Convention to which India is a signatory, are protected against any infringement of their Creative works in India through the International Copyright Order, 1999. Courts in India have also been pro-active for protection of Copyright of foreign authors and owners, which includes book, art, painting, music, films, software and database etc.

    Copyright protection in literary work, Book, scripts, screenplay, novels, lyrics: A detailed explanation is given here on what exactly is protected by law in case of literary works.

    Scenes affaire in India: One of the things that has been occurring in copyright law is a slow shift from being a common law subject to a statutory one. There has always been a federal Copyright Act, of course, but until recently, courts took it as an invitation to fill in the gaps rather than an unyielding constraint on their actions.
