Copyright is an exclusive legal right vested in the creator of an original work, which entitles such creator to use, distribute and commercially exploit their work. Commonly understood, copyright vests with, for instance, the author of the book, producer of a movie and composer of a song. Copyright can be considered as fecundity of the creativity of the artists and authors that the legislators seek to promote among their citizenry.
Over the years, copyright law has undergone drastic changes. The global awareness and interest in copyrights has been at an all-time high. This is the result of increasing realization about the financial benefits that can be derived by the authors of creative work through copyright licensing and assignment. As a corollary, it has also led to a spurt in copyright violation cases across the countries, especially with the advent of internet as a swifter mode of communication that has made the world a global village.
