Developments in India for laws that aim to provide protection for the application of digital rights management (DRM) technologies for [digital] media deserve more examination than assuming the need to adopt the World Intellectual Property Organization Copyright Treaty, or World Intellectual Property Organization Performances and Phonograms Treaty. Here we take a look at the Indian copyright environment, how it developed from early times, the current climate, and questions facing reformers.
