Intellectual property has always been an expanding concept. Music has been acknowledged and protected under the copyright system from the 19th century. The protection of music as an intellectual property received attention in the wake of illegal publishing of musical works. As such both performers and owners of the music were denied the benefits of the work that were due to them. There are numerous ways in which music piracy can be countered. The legislative framework has failed to bring about a clear elucidation to the problem. These can, however be dealt with, by making certain modifications to the enforcement mechanism to fill the lacunae and there must also be an incorporation of policy changes to counter music piracy.
