What is the term of protection of copyright granted in India?

 

The term of protection granted for works of copyright varies depending on the type of work sought to be protected. Literary or musical or artistic works (other than photographs), are granted copyright protection for a period which extends through the lifetime of the author and 60 years from the year in which the author dies. However, if the work has not been published, performed, or offered for sale or broadcast during the lifetime of the author, the copyright protection shall continue for a period of 60 years from the end of the year in which any of these acts are done relating to the work.

 

Cinematograph films, photographs and computer programs are protected for 60 years from the end of the year in which the work is made available to the public with the consent of the owner of the copyright or published work, or, failing such an event, for 60 years from the end of the year in which the work is made. Sound recordings are protected for 60 years from the end of the year in which the recording is first published.
