This abstract seeks to bring out the study of International Conventions under Copyright Law and Perspective of Developing Countries. Article 21 of the Indian Constitution ensures a just, fair, and reasonable procedure for disposing of any matter that came before any Hon’ble court or any tribunal. The faster the disputes are resolved it will be better for all the parties concerned in particular and for society in general. Repudiation of justice through hindrance is one of the biggest derision of law, but in India, it is not limited to mere derision; the postponement of the case, in fact, kills the entire justice dispensation system.
Every country across the globe have their own set of copyright laws. But, the flexibility that most of the country enjoys while adjusting and enforcing the same within the limited ambit of various international treaties. The basic function of the international treaties is to bring all the signatories under one roof and there must not be any difference between them while doing trade and businesses. Unluckily the present situation is quite complex and rigid and instead of a single treaty/ agreement, we have majorly six multilateral agreements. Every treaty/agreement will have some signatories. The six agreements are administered by international organizations. The aim to understand the implications of international agreements, to understand the need for the international management system of this field, and the perspective of developing countries.
