Copyright in India is purely a statutory right. The copyright Act, 1957 fixes the time of copyright in published literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works. Copyright is an intellectual property right which has been protected by Indian law. One can create an original work and secure the copyright by applying to the authority. The objective of the copyright is that the one who has created the work, should also be benefited with the same and the content of work shall not be allowed for plagiarism. The person who has been granted the copyright, can execute a deed with another person so as the get the financial benefit of his own work.

The object of copyright law is to encourage authors, composers, artists and designers to create original works by rewarding them with the exclusive right for a limited period to exploit the work for monetary gain.
It protects the writer or creator of the original work from the unauthorized reproduction or exploitation of his materials.
In order to secure copyright protection what is required is that the author must have bestowed upon the work sufficient judgment, skill and labor or capital. It is immaterial whether the work is wise or foolish, accurate or inaccurate or whether it has or has not any literary merit.
Thus it may be seen that in the case of literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works where the author is a natural person the term is lifetime plus fifty years. In all other cases the term if fifty years from the years of publication.
In general it is the commercial exploitation of the work in any form by a person without authority that constitutes infringement.
The Copyright Act provides certain exceptions to infringement. The object of these provisions is to enable the encouragement of private study and research and promotion of education. They provide defenses in an action for infringement.
Copyright law does not prevent a person from taking what is useful from an original work and create a new work with additions and improvements. Under the guise of a copyright the owner of a copyright cannot ask the court to close all the venues of research and scholarship and all frontiers of human knowledge.
