T he 3rd Indian Screenwriters’ Conference begins in Mumbai today, where 800 screenwriters are expected to deliberate on the creative and legal facets of screenwriting. Ahead of the conference, screenwriter Anjum Rajabali (Rajneeti, Pukar, The Legend of Bhagat Singh), the convener of the conference talks to DearCinema about some of the most pressing issues for writers:
How far have writers been successful in getting the Copyright Amendment Act implemented?
Right now, the new Copyright Board is being formed which will then confirm the rules that will make the amended Act operational. So really speaking, it is not in the writers’ hands. We have made our presentation to the Registrar at the meetings of stakeholders that were convened a few months ago. And we are ready with our flow-chart and plan of action, as soon as the Board calls us for that final meeting to confirm the protocols involved.
