Section 52 describes various circumstances under which copying will not be considered infringement Sub-Section (o)for instancestates that under the direction of a person in charge of a public libraryanyone can make up to three copies of a book for the use of the library if such book is not available for sale in India Sub-Section (p) allows a student to copy an unpublished literary work kept in a librarymuseum or other institution to which the public has accessfor the purpose of research or private study Neither of these provisions appears to have been invoked In factit appears at first glance that they will not apply since the books in question are clearly available for sale in India which has to be why the publishers of those books initiated action in the first place Could it then be that we feel these books are priced so far beyond the means of our impoverished student community that there is almost a Robin Hood-style justification that makes it acceptable to illegally copy these books If we take a look at Section 32A of the Copyright Actit appears that the statute has already addressed the issue in some small measure Section (1)(b) states that wherein connection with systematic instructional activitiescopies of the book are sold in India at a price that cannot reasonably be related to that normally charged in India for comparable works by the ownerany person may apply to the Copyright Board for a licence to reproduce and publish such work at a lower price for the purposes of systematic instructional activities If that is the caseand if it could be proved that the price of the books in question was exorbitant compared with similar booksit should be possible to apply and obtain a compulsory licence to publish the books at a cheaper price Howeverif all academic books of comparable quality are being sold at the same or similar price this clause is of little use to the problem at hand After this analysis it appears that the fault or at least a part of it should lie with the university An integral part of the process of imparting an education is identifying the books and research material that are relevant and essential to the completion of the educational programme The university is obligedin my viewto identify books that are not just suitable in terms of content but also easily available Where such a book is not availablethey should prescribe alternativeaffordable and accessible reading material better suited for higher education in India Or elsestudents should be made clearly aware of the financial commitment by way of textbooks that their course of study will involve Despite the public gnashing of teeth at the actions taken by the publishersthey are entirely within their rights It matters little if we believe that the law should not be strictly enforced in the special context of academic instruction Till such time as the law specifically prescribes special exceptions of the kind that will address this situationwe are obliged to adhere to the law as it stands Much as we may want the law to look leniently on the photocopier outside Delhi Universityhe violated the Copyright Act and is liable to be punished The writer

RAVI BATRA Top News This week marks a major “multilateral moment” in Indian diplomacy as Delhi joins an Asian regional forum and pitches hard for the membership of an international nuclear club The multilateral advance however is founded on some bold bilateral diplomacy In Tashkent this week the paper work for India’s membership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation a forum that brings China Russia and the Central Asian states together is likely to be completed In another corner of Asia in Seoul South Korea the members of the Nuclear Suppliers Group may deliberate on India’s application for membership Joining these two organisations has long been a major diplomatic objective for India The campaign for SCO membership has moved at a steady pace in the last many years However the final play for the NSG has been more recent and very demanding In the expansive dialogue between Delhi and Washington after the second round of nuclear tests in May 1998 India put special emphasis on removing the international restrictions on high technology exports that had accumulated since the mid 1970s Following the historic civil nuclear initiative between India and the US during 2005-08 President Barack Obama during the visit to India in November 2010 endorsed India’s claim for membership of the four export control groups — the Nuclear Suppliers Group the Missile Technology Control Regime the Australia Group that seeks to prevent chemical weapon production and the Wassenaar Arrangement that regulates trade in conventional weapons and dual use items India’s aspiration to become a full member of the global nuclear management was the logical next step to the civil nuclear initiative that had ended the prolonged international nuclear blockade against India But the UPA government’s delay in implementing the civil nuclear initiative meant there would be no progress on the membership of these forums As the government of Narendra Modi removed the last hurdles in the implementation of the nuclear initiative it also renewed the effort for entry into the four export control regimes Earlier this month the path was cleared for the membership of MTCR All eyes are now on its NSG campaign It is not quite clear if the NSG meeting this week will come up with a definitive decision on India’s application While a formal decision welcoming India into the NSG will be a huge achievement even a negative or non-decision will not detract from India’s high-octane diplomatic campaign The need for unanimity in the NSG for admitting India China’s openly expressed reservations the widespread temptation to link India’s membership with a signature on the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and the inevitable hyphenation of India with Pakistan were all big obstacles Instead of being deterred Delhi chose to up the stakes and raise its game It fielded President Pranab Mukherjee to make a direct appeal to President Xi Jinping during his visit to China last month The PM showed up in Geneva and Mexcio City to persuade the political leadership of Switzerland and Mexico to ease their reservations against India’s application to join the NSG He also picked up the phone to talk to some key leaders like Russia’s Vladimir Putin The external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj personally spoke to 23 counterparts among the members of the NSG The diplomatic effort called for an effective management of the Pakistan question that continues to complicate India’s bilateral and multilateral diplomacy on the regional and world stage The NSG campaign involved getting simultaneous Western and Russian support at a time when relations between the two have deteriorated and India is warming up to America It also demanded a sophisticated balancing act between the US India’s main supporter in the nuclear campaign and China the principal problem Many in Delhi have argued that drawing close to the US and asking China at the same time to lift its hold on India’s membership of the NSG was a bit of bravado But Delhi’s new diplomatic chutzpah is about ending the kind of political diffidence that underlined India’s traditional approach to the great powers Delhi’s NSG diplomacy reveals a new level of self-assurance that can explore the room for accommodation in all directions rather than hide behind the slogan of non-alignment and do nothing Many have argued that the net benefit for India from membership of the NSG is rather little After all India is now free to engage in civil nuclear commerce under the exemption that the NSG had provided Delhi in 2008 But as Sushma Swaraj put it in her Sunday press conference there is a big difference between sitting outside a room seeking the indulgence of others and being inside and making the nuclear rules Call it what you will Indian diplomacy is shaking off its traditional risk aversion trading potential favours exercising leverages and bargaining for productive outcomes Whether it wins in Seoul this week or not Delhi has demonstrated that it has the political will to play hard ball on issues of high national interest The writer is director Carnegie India and contributing editor on foreign affairs for
