The book attempts to critically analyse the cases on the law of copyright, decided by the Indian Courts as well as Courts of other countries, specially English and American Courts. The book also evaluates the relation between statutory copyright law as well as case law on the subject.

The book is divided into ten chapters. Chapter 1 is introductory, while Chapters 2 and 3 discuss the origin and development of law of copyright at international as well as national level. The most important debatable issue in copyright law is works in which copyright subsists, and Chapter 4 is devoted to this aspect. Chapter 5 explores various issues relating to author of work, owner of copyright and recognised rights of copyright owner.

The terms of copyright, licensing of copyright, international copyright and registration of copyright are the subject matters of Chapter 6, while rights of broadcasting organisation and of performers (neighbouring rights) are the subject matters of Chapter 7. Internet is the greatest communication medium of the contemporary era, and there is an inherent link between law of copyright and internet. Therefore, Chapter 8 is devoted to discuss various issues relating to protection of copyright in internet. While Chapter 9 demonstrates the law relating to infringement of copyright and defences of copyright liability, Chapter 10 discusses the enforcement of copyright in India.

This book will be useful to the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Law, researchers, academicians, jurists, lawyers, judges as well as members of civil society.

The principal aim of analysis of tensors is to investigate those relations which remain valid when we change from one coordinate system to another. This book on Tensors requires only a knowledge of elementary calculus, differential equations and classical mechanics as pre-requisites. It provides the readers with all the information about the tensors along with the derivation of all the tensorial relations/equations in a simple manner. The book also deals in detail with topics of importance to the study of special and general relativity and the geometry of differentiable manifolds with a crystal clear exposition. The concepts dealt within the book are well supported by a number of solved examples. A carefully selected set of unsolved problems is also given at the end of each chapter, and the answers and hints for the solution of these problems are given at the end of the book. The applications of tensors to the fields of differential geometry, relativity, cosmology and electromagnetism is another attraction of the present book.

This book is intended to serve as text for postgraduate students of mathematics, physics and engineering. It is ideally suited for both students and teachers who are engaged in research in General Theory of Relativity and Differential Geometry.
