Event Announcement: Copyright and Digital Media; Oct 30 #Ad

MediaNama invites you to apply to attend an online discussion on potential reworking of the Copyright Act, taking into account emerging issues related to the digital age.

Date: October 30, 2020 (Friday)
Time: 2:00 PM
Venue: Link for the online session will be shared with confirmed participants

The Copyright Office of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, is seeking comments from the industry on amendments to the Copyright Act, keeping in mind technological developments and the usage of the Internet for publishing and distribution of content, and a global market for the publishing and distribution of content. Recommendations have to be submitted to the DPIIT by November 30, 2020. More on that here.

You may apply to attend here.

MediaNama’s discussion will look at some of the key issues related to content online that have emerged in the recent past, such as:

  • Statutory licensing of content online
  • The advent of online licensing for performance on user generated content platforms
  • Intermediary liability and Section79 of the IT Act vs Section 52 of the Copyright Act
  • Issues related to fair dealing and documentaries
  • The increase in John Doe orders
  • The role of an Intellectual Property Appellate board
  • Technological protections (DRM) and Copyright
  • Digital Piracy
  • Copyright and live performances

This is an invite-only event, and you will need to apply to attend the session. Please feel free to suggest points of discussion and questions, in the application form.


  • Registration does not guarantee attendance. In case you fit our mandate for the intended audience, we’ll send you a confirmation on or before October 29, 2020.
