Copyright Laws

The Head of Chambers has been adviser to the Rights Management Society of Mauritius (formerly Mauritius Society of Authors or MASA) and has cases where he represents the said society in court.
In the past we associated copyright to just copies of cds and DVDs. Nowadays the law protects everyone who has acquired rights in a particular creation, whether it is art, craft, trademarks, logos,etc..
The new Copyright Act 2014 is subjected to several prospective amendments but it basically brings in the following:
•    To fight piracy;
•    To protect performers, producers of phonograms and broadcasting organisations;
•    To bring in remedies for the infringement of the rights of copyright holders. Webutation
