Enrichment of culture is of vital interest to each and every society. The copyright law helps in fulfilling this social interest. Copyright helps the composers, authors, designers, artists to protect their works. Copyright Law always tries to prevent plagiarism. Copyright is a type of intellectual property that protects the original works of the authors.  The authors get the exclusive right for a limited period to use their works. The Copyright Act has been enacted to check the piracy. Works of the authors are original when they are independently created by a human author without copying from others. A study on legislative measures relating to Copyright in India will help us to get a proper knowledge regarding the different provisions of copyright law in India. In copyright law it includes books, poems, paintings, photographs, illustrations, musical compositions, sound recordings, computer programmes, architectural works, cinematograph films etc. We can say that the copyright is the right which a person acquires in his original work and which is the result of his intellectual labour. The primary function of a copyright law is to protect the fruits of a man’s work from the infringers. By observing and understanding the international character of copyright the various countries have joined to form conventions for the protection of copyrights owned by its nationals. Infringement of copyright is a great problem in the present days so the copyright Law always tries to prevent it. Copyright Law in India has tried to make a great development in the arena of literature, arts and sculpture by protecting the copyrights of the original authors.
