Arbitration and Copyright Disputes

Can copyright disputes be subject to arbitration?

Expert Advice

The answer depends on the nature of dispute. If it is a civil dispute involving copyright violation, the dispute can be referred to arbitration provided there is a valid arbitration agreement between the parties. The Hon'ble Bombay High Court in a recent ruling (Eros International vs. Telemax) in April 2016 , has held that disputes related to intellectual property can be referred to arbitration.
