Hello there!

Please can someone provide info on copyright and intellectual property laws in India. For example, If a  creative film/ video was shot and edited in a capacity of Director of photography(DoP) and editor for a client,  for a valuable consideration(fee) and there was no written agreement or work for hire agreement, who would own the intellectual rights/ copyright to this work? The party paying the money or the person who was behind the camera?

Thank you in advance :)

In this case both the Creator and the producer can together or individually copyright the same video.

If it is done individually say the creator wants to copyright he will have to get an NOC from the producer.

If the producer copyrights he has to get NOC from the Director.

each person will copyright in different capacity. director as director.

Producer as producer.

neither is infringing into each others capacity.

I hope i am amply clear
