The history of various civil societies at different stages underlines the central role that property rights have played in promoting their socio-economic and political development. A human being is a social animal. He performs a moral duty to enrich society through his creative ideas, works, inventions and writings etc. These views are public in their nature, but private property. It has been recognized as a man's natural right from the beginning. But gradually, it acquired the status of legal rights and came to be known as industrial property, such as patents, trademarks, and designs, etc. All types of industrial property that are considered to be negative rights prevent the appropriation of personal property. With the passage of time, these rights are, now, known as "intellectual property" and include copyright, design of integrated circuits, geographical indications and trade secrets or patents of traditional rights, design and trademarks. Thus, copyright is a newly emerging "statutory right relating to printing, music, communication, entertainment, and computers, etc. The primary purpose of the Copyright Act is to protect the interests of the author.
