Title: Copyright Issues in E-Publishing
Authors: James, T C
Issue Date: Jul-2003
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Copyright law emerged and developed as a response to technological challenges to publisher’s control over his publications. The advent of e-publishing made possible by digital technologies is no exception. An examination of various sections of the Indian Copyright Act makes it clear that e-publishing gets protected under the Act. There, however, are a number of new issues between the author and the publisher and between the publisher and the end user. There have been efforts by the international community to address these issues and these efforts have lead to the finalization of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Phonograms and Performances Treaty in 1996. These treaties obligate national governments to provide legal protection for the technological measures of protection used by copyright owners on their digitized works and also the rights management information put on them. These provisions are required to be acted upon by the government in the interest of e-publishing. Further, the industry and the government should come together to find solutions to the various unresolved copyright issues involved in e-publishing in the interest of the development of the book publishing industry in India.
