Title: Copyright Laws in India and Maintenance of a Welfare State
Authors: Singhania, Ankita

Abstract: Information has attained the status of a ‘primary good’ and is therefore essential for the socio-economic development of an individual in any society. Given the nature of the Indian polity which is a Welfare State, the current copyright regime in India, which has largely been modelled to fulfil India’s obligations under the TRIPS Agreement, does not strike a harmonious balance between promoting the progress of arts and sciences and fulfilling the constitutional mandate of achieving social and economic justice. The lengthy term of protection of copyright is detrimental to the benefit that public might derive from release of such work in public domain. Developing nations like India should develop copyright models that do not stunt the growth of their skilled work force and further satisfy their constitutional goals.
