IMI — Representing Indian Music Industry worldwide

IMI stated in its representation that accession to WPPT by India would be a step in the right direction. IMI highlighted the positive outcomes to be gained by acceding to the WPPT, such as international protection of works, generation of revenues from growing global digital content markets, ensuring that Indian rights holders receive revenue from the use of their work abroad, greater investment both by domestic and foreign investors and protection of local culture and creativity. Additionally, the accession to the WIPO internet treaties would help aligning India's copyright law with existing international treaties.
