BIG DATA AND DATA PROTECTION UNDER INDIAN COPYRIGHT REGIME
By Twinkle Singh
With the emergence of high-end computing resources, sophisticated algorithms, and Big Data analytics, more and more data has been generated with monetary growth being the crucial aspect for many companies. In this article, I shall endeavour to examine this new source of artistic work, taking into account the fundamental issues of copyright and the difficulties and limitations of the current Indian legislation.
In deciding whether copyright exists in works produced with the assistance of artificial intelligence, I shall briefly discuss the three triads of copyright security i.e., originality, idea & speech dichotomy and fixation-along with ownership and authorship. In doing so I will look at some of the legal requirements, specifically the law in India and the current rules in the U.S.A., along with other aspects of copyright. Subsequently, this article will establish how databases as produced works can fit under the scope of copyright law.
