Legal Issues Seminar-General IP (LIS-GIP) On “Whether Geospatial Data Can Be Accorded Copyright Protection?”

Featuring: Yash Raj

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar – General IP’ (LIS-GIP) was conducted by Yash Raj, Trainee Associate, on “Whether Geospatial Data Can Be Accorded Copyright Protection?”. The seminar explored the relevant provisions under the Copyright Act, 1957 in conjunction with the divergent views taken by courts to determine whether geospatial data can be granted copyright protection. The session concluded with an interesting discussion on the applicability of fair dealing provisions to protected geospatial data and whether there is a need for sui-generis legislation to appropriately provide protection of geospatial data.
