It has been a debatable topic since many years about the exclusivity of broadcasting rights. If the broadcaster gets full exclusive rights, then he will surely exploit the market conditions because the licensing and ownership act as a legal obstacle in the competition of market. They interfere in the market without complying the due process of the required law. On the other hand, United States of America is not a party to “Rome Convention” and the “TRIPS” and it also opposes the WIPO treaty which is being proposed. Indian copyright promises countless positive rights to broadcasters, which the United States of America system is completely deficient.
