Film industry against amendments to Copyright Act
The Film Federation of India (FFI) is meeting in Mumbai on 29 December to take a final decision on the threatened strike in January by various sections of the film industry against the amendments to the Copyright Act.
This decision was taken during a meeting of the FFI in Chennai, which saw the participation of several organisations from the southern states.
The film industry is opposed to the proposed Copyright Amendment Bill 2010 that mandates producers to share 50 per cent music royalty with lyricists and composers.
A day-long strike along with a dharna in Delhi is proposed against what is termed as the `draconian` law which will affect the industry. There would be no show at theatres on 6 January and industry professionals including actors, directors, producers and others will participate in the strike and demonstration at Delhi.
