The Digital Accelerate - Penalising Piracy: Amendments to the Cinematograph Act

The Indian film industry has time and again cited piracy as a predominant challenge to its growth. With increased access to mobile phones and availability of reliable and high-speed internet connectivity, film piracy or unauthorised duplication of copyrighted content has become much easier.

This edition of the Digital Accelerate gives an overview of the recent amendments made to the Cinematograph Act, 1952. These amendments are expected to provide a strong framework for the protection of owners of intellectual property and promote innovation and creativity, thereby helping shape a more Vibrant Bharat.
