The first rule of copyright and fair use of audio on Soundfry

The first rule of copyright


Creators should only upload audios that they have created or that they are authorized to use. That means they should not upload audios that they did not create, or use content in their audios that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music, sound or audios made by other users, without their permission.


What are fair uses and exceptions of copyright act?


The Copyright Act, 1957 provides for certain exceptions to infringement of copyright, under Section 52. The provision permits limited use of copyrighted material without the owner’s authorization/permission.


However, fair use is determined on a case-by-case basis, and different countries have different rules about when it is acceptable to use material/content without the copyright owner's permission. In India, the following points might be considered fair use, but it can depend on the situation.


"52. Certain acts not to be infringement of copyright. — (1) The following acts shall not constitute an infringement of copyright, namely, — [(a) a fair dealing with any work, not being a computer programme, for the purposes of— (i) private or personal use, including research; (ii) criticism or review, whether of that work or of any other work; (iii) the reporting of current events and current affairs, including the reporting of a lecture delivered in public. Explanation. — The storing of any work in any electronic medium for the purposes mentioned in this clause, including the incidental storage of any computer programme which is not itself an infringing copy for the said purposes, shall not constitute infringement of copyright.]
(2) The provisions of sub-section (1) shall apply to the doing of any act in relation to the translation of a literary, dramatic or musical work or the adaptation of a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work as they apply in relation to the work itself."
