Indian Govt Proposes New Copyright Rules to Benefit Music Streaming Firms and Websites


Government of India proposes a change in copyright rules to benefit music streaming firms and websites.  This amendment comes in order to ensure that songs and videos reach a maximum number of people at an affordable price, which in case of dispute may be fixed by a quasi-judicial body Intellectual Property Appellate Board (IPAB). 

Once the changes are approved, it would become easier for websites, portals, and music streaming firms to buy contents (songs and videos) and upload them. However, the move could hurt the commercial interest of content owners of songs and videos.  Currently, the Act covers only radio and TV broadcast firms are allowed to take permission from the owners and negotiate a price bilaterally or through IPAB under Section 31D of the Act.  The official source said "The content owners should not have the sole monopoly over the content and it should reach more and more people"
