• Copyright as Author’s Rights  : Round Table on The Author’s Concerns on Copyright Licensing
    പകർപ്പവകാശം : എഴുത്തുകാരൻറെ അവകാശം  – വട്ടമേശസമ്മേളനം

The Centre organized a one day round table conference on Copyright as Author’s Rights on 11th December 2017 .  It was intended to explore real problems in Kerala especially in the print media context faced by the authors while commercially exploiting their own works. Prof. M K Sanoo, Justice Sukumaran, Narayan, K P Surekha and few writers shared their experiences. Most of the writers were unaware of the issues related with the selling of copyright to others and matters to be considered while constituting an agreement between the writer and publishers, and claiming or negotiating their own rights related with the royalty .  The round table discussion was very much useful to keep themselves away from cheating from the part of publishers and distributors.
