This highly acclaimed text on this subject has been thoroughly revised to reflect the changing nature of copyright. The author has focused the latest development of law in the wake of the Berne Convention, GATT and TRIPs and parried all possible problems with probable solutions. The topics of discussion include matters of copyright, joint authorship, piracy and infringement, criminal proceedings, copyright society, international conventions, industrial design and so on. All the changes due to the Copyright (Amendment) Act 2012 and the Copyright Rules 2013 (which repealed and replaced the Copyright Rules 1958) are embodied not only in the appropriate places of the text, but also in the Appendices to keep the readers abreast of the law.

• Ownership of copyright 
• Joint authorship
• Piracy and infringement
• Criminal proceedings
• Copyright society 
• Copyright conventions
• Industrial design issues
