The beauty of the Copyright Law 1957, is:

I. It protects you,

II. It provides you with the opportunity to honour another.

Very recently we saw how our very own rap star, youth icon faced copyright issues on a famous composition 'Genda Phool'. Without copyright protection, anyone can copy your song and make a pirate version of your song and misuse. If anyone copies your song or try to breach your rights then he will get punishment under the copyright act.

How does Copyright protect a Song?

So, if a 'song' or 'lyric' is pirated and not original, it is not protected under copyright law. Copyright gives you an exclusive right and your work will be protected under the copyright laws. There is no age limit to attain copyright for your work even a minor can get a copyright for his work.

Copyright protection is very beneficial because without copyright protection anyone can copy your song and make a pirate version of your song and misuse. If anyone copies your song or try to breach your rights then he will get punishment/penalties under the Copyright Act 1957.
