Each of you reading this article is a criminal and should be jailed for up to three years. Yes, you. “Why?,” you may ask. Have you ever whistled a tune or sung a film song aloud? Have you ever retold a joke? Have you replied to an e-mail without deleting the copy of that e-mail that automatically added to the reply? Or photocopied pages from a book? Have you ever used an image from the Internet in presentation? Have you ever surfed the Internet at work, used the the ‘share’ button on a website, or re-tweeted anything on Twitter? And before 2012, did you ever use a search engine? If you have done any of the above without the permission of the copyright holder, you might well have been in violation of the Indian Copyright Act, since in each of those examples you’re creating a copy or are otherwise infringing the rights of the copyright holder. Interestingly, it was only through an amendment in 2012 that search engines (like Google and Yahoo) were legalized. Traditional Justifications for Copyright. Copyright is one among the many forms of intellectual property rights. Across differing theories of copyright, two broad categories may be made.
