Music Notation Copyright in India

Copyright for Music Notation

It can sometimes be a little tricky to understand copyright in the field of music. For it varies for music notations, songs, and sound recordings. To understand how copyright works for music notations, let us first know what music notations are. Simply put, it's a written form of music that uses different symbols. Any music sung or played has a printed representation to give the artist an idea about its notes and variations. Thus the essence of the music produced using these notations remains uniform, notwithstanding the different artists performing it.

Composer: The Sole Owner of the Musical Notations

Mostly the copyright of the music notation remains with the composer, who becomes its sole owner as soon as he incepts the note and writes it down. Since music notes are written down, the composer is expected to write down the copyright notice on the first page. It remains an optional move, and there is no harm in making an exception and not doing it. In most cases, the composer, who holds the copyright of the music notes, sells half of it to the publisher, who subsequently files for the copyright of the music. In those cases where the composer has sold the rights of the music completely, the publisher files paper for the complete ownership. Although the music notes are written down on paper, that single piece of paper is protected by stringent rights.

Restriction on the Musical Notations

That piece of paper inscribed notes cannot be photocopied, put on the internet, publicly performed, or translated into recordings. However, written permission allows for the non-profit performance of music in colleges, schools, churches, etc.

Therefore, the composer must get their musical notations copyrighted right from the start to save his work from theft and plagiarism.
