Copyright is an intellectual property right granted to all the creators of an” work”. However, these rights are normally mutually dependent. For example, there cannot be an Cinematographic film without a literary, dramatic and artistic work involved, and all these works are independently created by different authors who are vested with independent rights. This makes it clear that the exploitation of film entails the exploitation of the other underlying works too, and thus the rights need to co-exist while the exploitation takes place. This will make sure that the independent authors are adequately remunerated for their contribution to the whole work. The international and Indian position regarding the same often exists in a dubious manner, and it is the aim of the paper to shed light on the same.
