Digital Rights Protection And Management Is Urgently Required In India

Counterfeiting and piracy have always remained a cause of concern for intellectual property rights (IPRs) holders. There are many solutions suggested for curbing the menace of counterfeiting and piracy in India. One of it is “digital rights protection” in India. However, the concept of digital rights has never been understood properly in India.

Experts believe that digital rights must not only be protected but they must also be managed properly. The same must be done in a techno-legal manner. Instead of imposing foreign models, India must formulate its own “techno-legal model” of digital rights protection and management, says Mr. Praveen Dalal, the leading Techno-Legal Expert of India.

Entertainment Industry has always complained about the issues of piracy in India. In the absence of a law pertaining to entertainment industry in India, these concerns would always remain unresolved.

The problem has now starting taking its natural shape. Incidents of stealing signals from satellite have been reported in India. The entertainment industry is wary about these issues as presently there is neither a law nor technology in India to deal with these issues.
