Songs Copyright in India

As already mentioned, sound recording copyright is slightly different from music notations copyright. Unlike musical notes, a sound recording noted down on a sheet is a material object that either reproduces or mechanically plays music. It is imperative to mention here that motion pictures and audio-visual works do not fall in the category of sound recordings. To put things further in perspective, sound recording copyrights are held by record labels, while the right over composition property is that of the publishing company. The publisher holds the right to the composition as he uses them in promotions and other platforms and generates revenues from that.

Once a recording of the original music performance is made on a tape recorder or any other digital medium, it is further edited. The copies are known as the master copy. Therefore an individual or a company can buy the rights to the master copy. Since plagiarism in music is a common phenomenon, sound recording bears copyright notices. A letter P inside a circle, then the year in which the recording was first published, and then the name of the person or company with the right over the recording.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Once the copyright holder of the music sheet has sold the rights to a company or a producer, any other individual or company is entitled to have the compulsory license to make recordings of the composition. The move aims to prevent sheet owners from authorizing one company the full right over the music and thus reducing the chances of monopoly over the music industry.
