Internet Intermediary (ISP) Liability for Contributory Copyright Infringement in USA and India: Lack of Uniformity as a Trade Barrier

Title: Internet Intermediary (ISP) Liability for Contributory Copyright Infringement in USA and India: Lack of Uniformity as a Trade Barrier

Authors: Kumar, Aakanksha

Abstract: With the internet today transcending all
national boundaries, the protection of IP and penalising its infringement over
the ‘world-wide-web’ has become even more difficult, given the territorial
nature of the grant of the intellectual property right. Moreover, while hosting, routing, and linking to
these ‘infringing material harbouring’ - sites or services, internet service
providers (ISPs) themselves become vulnerable to charges of copyright
infringement. The law in the US has since long, been very strict against ISPs
for contributory/ secondary copyright infringement. However, India has only
recently enacted a legal provision dealing with ISPs. The lack of it has been
one of the main reasons for delay in the Indo-US free trade agreement. Although,
India has not ratified the WIPO internet treaties, and hence not obligated to
have an enforceable ISP liability law, India’s 2012 Copyright Amendment Act
read together with Sections 79 and 81 of the Information Technology Act and the
May 2011 Guidelines for Internet Intermediaries constitute comprehensive legal
provisions to fix ISP liability. This paper seeks to highlight the salient
features of the ISP liability laws in India and the US and discuss how, even
with the new law, differences still remain, leading to continued trade-relation
barriers.
