Abstract: The paper discusses about the role of copyright and intellectual property in cultural and economic development of developing countries, as also in the promotion of qualitative competitiveness in national and international trade. Economic growth depends increasingly on international competitiveness of the economy, industry and business. This competitiveness is driven by knowledge-based technological progress, which is encouraged, promoted and helped through effective IP protection. Effective use of the IP system and its enforcement by the judiciary and other enforcement agencies, essential for the socio-economic development of a country, is discussed in detail. WIPO Internet Treaties for the protection of copyright and related rights in the digital age are also discussed.
