Frequently Asked Questions
With the technological advancements and innovations in cyber world the global markets have benefitted the copyright or patent owners. However, every good innovation has its own pitfalls as violation of IPR has become one of the major concerns because of the growth of cyber technology. The IPR and Cyber law go hand in hand and cannot be kept in different compartments and the online content needs to be protected.
The ever-increasing and evolving cybercrimes are not confined to cyber-stalking, frauds, cyberbullying, phishing, or spamming but are also infringement of IPR- copyright, trademark, trade secrets of businesses carried online, audios, videos, service marks by illegal practices like hyperlinking, framing, meta-tagging, and many more.
Copyright Infringement: Copyright protection is given to the owner of any published artistic, literary, dramatic, or scientific work over his work to exclude everyone else from using that work on his own name and thereby gain profit from it.
The infringement of these copyrights includes the usage without the permission of the owner, making and distributing copies of software and unauthorized sale of the same, and illegitimate copying from websites or blogs.
Linking: Linking refers to directing a user of a website to another webpage by action of clicking on a text or image without leaving the current page. It poses a threat to rights and interests of the owner of the website and the owner can lose the income as it related to the number of users visiting the websites. It may lead users to believe that the two websites are linked and are under same domain and ownership.
Framing: Framing is another challenge and becomes a legal issue and debate subject over the interpretation of derivation and adaptation under Section 14 Copyrights Act, 1957. The framer only provides users the modus operandi to access copyrighted content which is retrieved from a website to browser the user is accessing so they cannot be held responsible for copying, communicating, or distributing the copyrighted content. The question arises whether getting the copyrighted content from a website and combining with some more to create one’s own will amount to adaptation or interpretation under law or not.
