Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

Dear Members,

As you must be aware, the current Indian Copyright Act was passed in year 1957, with an objective to provide a legal framework to protect the rights of the creators of the Copyright work. Subsequently, several amendments were made to the law in the year in 1983, 1984, 1992, 1994 and 1999 to meet the national & international requirements.

The latest amendment was made in the year 2012, bringing Indian copyright law into compliance with the latest World Intellectual Property Organization Treaties – the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) also known as “internet treaties”.
