ABSTRACT
Film makers, musicians, writers, cinematographers, singers, choreographer…..without copyrights, none of these occupations could claim remuneration. But because culture must be accessible to the greatest number, UNESCO, WTO, WIPO are engaged in seeking the right balance between the interests of the artist and those of the general public. The new techniques of pirating musical recording or DVD’s however, are threatening this fragile equilibrium. This paper presents an overview of the current scenario of music and film piracy in different parts of the world. Intellectual property right is working as a global protector to protect rights of original creator, authors etc.
