Internet Broadcasting is included Under the Copyright Act

Internet-Broadcasting-is-included-Under-the-Copyright-Act 
 
In a significant move earlier this week, DIPP (Department of industrial policy and promotion) brought Internet broadcasting under the purview of Statutory licensing of the Copyright Act, 1957. This move will benefit streaming websites and artistes as earlier music companies had the upper hand in royalty distribution.
 
In an office memorandum DIPP said, "The provisions of section 31D (of the Copyright Act, 1957) are not restricted to radio and television broadcasting organizations only, but cover Internet broadcasting organizations also," DIPP had received representations from various stakeholders as to whether internet broadcasting comes under the section 31D of the Copyrights Act. "These representations were examined in consultation with ministries/departments concerned," it said.
 
So far, royalties were decided only by music companies, since internet broadcasting was not covered by the copyright Act. With this move music companies and streaming websites need to approach Copyright Board to decide royalties.
