Legal Issues Seminar (LIS) on ‘Third-Party Licensing Companies under The Copyright Act, 1957’

A ‘Legal Issues Seminar’ was conducted by Hardik Choudhary, Trainee Associate, on Legal Issues in third-party licensing and collecting companies under the Copyright Act, 1957. The seminar touched upon legality of such entities under the Act, and the exemptions of agency and assignment claimed by them towards avoiding registration as a Copyright Society.

Our first session for the year saw questions from the team on whether claiming such exemptions are circumventing of Section 33 of the Act, the differing interpretation of Sections 18, 30 and 33 of the Act by Courts, the purpose of registration of Copyright Societies, etc.
