The Copyright Act 1957 and subsequent amendments made in 1999, 2002 and 2012 fully implements Berne Convention for Protection of Literary and Artistic Works 1886 as well as the Universal Copyrights Convention which India is a signatory of. The Copyrights Act 1957 also conforms to Geneva Convention for the Protection of Rights of Producers of Phonograms. Since India is an active member of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), certain concerns has to be addressed through a copyright law.

With the advent of satellite and computer technologies, the act was amended accordingly to protect artistic creations as was envisaged in the Rome Convention. Registration of copyrights in India: In India, one does not need copyright registration to take legal action against any infringement. Registration of copyright in India is treated merely as a record of fact and does not really confer any special right to the one registering. This view has been upheld by the judiciary through its various judgements from time to time. But copyright registration, although is not mandatory and does not confer any special right, should be done anyway as the registration certificate is treated by the courts as proof of ownership and is swiftly acted upon by law enforcing authorities in case of any infringement. Protection of foreign works through the copyrights act: Works of foreign nationals of countries, which are members of conventions India is a signatory to, are protected through the International Copyright Order 1999. In India, courts have also taken it upon themselves to protect the works of foreign nationals and companies viz. software, music and movies. The Indian government along with organisations like NASSCOM and NIAPC have taken several steps to counter piracy in these fields. Enforcement of the Copyrights Act: In India, the Copyrights Act 1957 provides for civil like permanent injunction, damages or accounts of profit, cost of the legal proceedings, delivery of the infringed material for destruction etc. Apart from that it also makes certain instances of copyright infringements cognizable offence which is punishable with imprisonment for a term not less than 6 months extendable up to 3 years and a fine not less than Rs.50,000, which may extend to Rs.2,00,000.
