MS. PURNIMA JOSHI
This paper tries to study and critically review the provisions regarding Digital Rights Management in the Indian Copyright (Amendment) Bill, 2010. This bill was approved by the Union Cabinet on December 24, 2009, and was introduced in the Rajya Sabha on April 19, 2010. In the statement of purpose of the bill, it is stated that “the Bill seeks to modernise copyright law in view of the challenges raised by the new digital environment and the Internet”. Therefore, some of the provisions of this bill are compared to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of the USA that has incorporated the provisions of the WIPO Copyright Treaty into the US Law way back in 1998.
