Almost everybody in the country
is familiar with the cable television. It has
been spreading its wings from the initial urban
cities, right to the remote villages. There
has been a haphazard mushrooming of cable television
networks all over the country due to the availability
of signals of foreign television networks via
satellites. To check the screening of undesirable
programmes and advertisements which are screened
on these channels and to regulate the operation
of the cable television networks in the country,
so as to bring uniformity in their functioning,
the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act
was passed in both the Houses of the Parliament.

"The importance of copyright
was recognized after the invention of the printing
press which enabled the reproduction of books
in large quantity. The Indian Copyright Act
was thus passed in 1914. But, during the last
four decades, modern and advanced means of communications
like broadcasting, litho-photography, television,
etc made inroads in the Indian economy. It necessitated
the fulfillment of international obligations
in the field of Copyright. A comprehensive legislation
had to be introduced to completely revise the
Copyright law. This was achieved by the introduction
of a Copyright Bill, 1957 in the Parliament."
