Legally protecting creative and artistic accomplishments.

Copyright law in India covers the rights granted to the creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works as well as the producers of cinematography, films and sound recordings. These are a bundle of rights which include, among other things, the rights to reproduction of the work, communication of the work to the public, adaptation or translation of the work.

We regularly advise clients in registering, negotiating terms and conditions of publishing, distributing, securing royalty as well as drafting licensing or assignment agreements. We further offer advice on the international validity of copyrights. We have extensive experience in infringement litigation, having successfully represented both copyright owners as well as alleged infringers.
