Perils of piracy in entertainment industry discussed

The entertainment industry is a convergence of creativity and commerce and copyright is a catalyst for this convergence, Sharmila Roychoudhury, Partner, Lex Orbis, Intellectual Property Practice Solicitors and Advocates, said during a seminar on 'Copyright issues in relation to entertainment industry,' held in the Capital on Tuesday.

The seminar was organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Sandeep Marwah, Co- Chairman, Entertainment Committee, PHDCCI and President, Asian Academy of Film and TV, highlighted the perils of piracy which have adversely affected the Hindi music industry. He laid stress on the seriousness of the issue by pointing out that we should all make efforts to help the industry grow better.

Vedant Pujari, Associate, Lex Orbis, in his presentation on "Copyright Protection for Entertainment Industry" identified copyright as the best suited protection offered by Intellectual Property Laws. He said, "an important doctrine in copyright law is the expression dichotomy, wherein copyright does not seek to protect ideas but only the unique expressions of ideas."

Pujari emphasised that copyright law protects the work of original authorship. He attributed the lack of IPR awareness on the part of the owner of the copyright as one of the factors for piracy.

Amar LV, Associate, Lex Orbis through his presentation on "Enforcement of Copyright" identified three remedies for copyright infringement which were classified into civil, administrative and criminal remedies. He supported his presentation by highlighting the case reviews of Gramophone as well as the Pepsi and Coke commercial.

The welcome address was given by Jaspal Singh Sawhney, Chairman, Entertainment Committee, PHDCCI.
