The goal of this paper is to investigate the copyright issue surrounding digital content in India; various students and researchers have written about digital content, thus making it easier for everyone to learn and understand about the phenomena that surround the discovery, retrieval, and generation of new data in every subject. Individuals have been mass-publishing digital content in the form of eBooks, blog posts, and even Facebook and other social media platforms, unknowingly that they are creating digital content. People are abusing this facility by interfering with the rights of various authors, creators, or producers either because of ignorance or not knowing that what they are actually doing is an offense. The copyright law's purpose is to establish a legal framework for the protection of a writer's "artistic," "literary," or "musical work." Copyright is essential not only to the persons and companies who rely on it for their livelihood, but it also has an impact on the daily lives of members of the public and enterprises dependent on the copyright’s contents in one way or another. However, the realm of Intellectual Property Rights, as in regard to Copyright in India, has just been debated for so many years; and many changes have been made to both the laws and practices in the ambit to make the protection more effective. This article will help not only creators of digital material, such as librarians, administrators, writers, and publishers, understand copyright problems pertaining to their digital work, but it will shed light on the challenges facing digital copyright protection, how to improve the system and the significant achievement the laws has made in far as the protection of digital content is concerned.
