Hi Ramya,

This forum will principally address the HR compliances, labour and employment laws related queries and discussions.

With regard to SME’s:
Not only the copyright laws but also all the laws relating to Intellectual Property Rights are important and essential to know.

You can refer to the last table in this link Technology Upgradation and Quality Certification | Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises ( and Guide (

Copyright is s a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. It is a bundle of rights including, rights of reproduction, communication to the public, adaptation and translation of the work.

To know more on this you can read Hand Book of Copyright Law and visit the official website Copyright Office.
