Literature/Dramatic Copyright in India

Literature/Dramatic Copyright

Copyright protects original literary works. Any work by the author must be original at every level and not adapted or copied. Moving on, if two people have produced similar works in a particular field, both of them will be given copyright for their works.

In recent times, when the internet is flooded with information, and it is easier to access various works, the Act protects the original works of literary works. Otherwise, authors seeking an easier route tend to plagiarise in the name of research. This Act discourages them from doing so and rewards the original work by protecting them at every level.

On the other hand, dramatic copyright sometimes protects original dramatic work and its adaptations. The Act also endeavours to protect recitations, choreography, and entertainment shows. However, it must be noted that cinematograph films do not come under the ambit of this Act.

 

Eligibility Criteria for Literature/Dramatic Copyright

Make sure that your literature or dramatic work is the original one and free from plagiarism. That’s the only eligibility criteria to obtain Literature/Dramatic Copyright.

Difference between Literary and Dramatic Art Work

Literary Artwork

Literary work encompasses almost all forms of creative writing. Therefore, the literary works majorly include the following:

  • Textbooks
  • Poem
  • Magazine
  • Catalogue
  • Letters
  • Novel
  • Dissertation
  • Lyrics of a song

Dramatic Artwork

A Copyright subsists in original dramatic work and its adaptation. Any dramatic work includes a piece for recitation, choreographic work or entertainment in a show, or the scenic arrangement of an acting piece, the form of which is fixed in writing. But a dramatic work must not include a cinematographic film. Here, choreography and scenic arrangement are the art of designing stage dance in an artful symbolic language. They are a form of dramatic work. This Act distinguishes between a literary work and a dramatic one.

The difference between the two artworks is that a literary work allows itself to be read whereas a dramatic work forms the text upon the play’s performance. A dramatic work can be written, printed, or converted to a permanent form. But, it does not include a cinematograph film.
