Abstract: This article explores the protection to authors-employees and freelancers-in India in the light of the recent US decision in the Tasini case. Traversing the history and context of the Tasini case, particularly, explaining the court’s philosophy behind the recognition of a freelancers right over his employer/publisher, the paper highlights the concept of authorship in India and the significant differences in the manner employees and freelancers are treated under the Indian legal system.
