In India, the copyright of computer software is protected under the Indian Copyright Act of 1957. Copyright protection for software with an individual author lasts for the duration of the author's life and continues 60 years after the author's death. Government agencies such as the Ministry of Information Technology and the Ministry of Human Resource Development have played an active role in aiding the Indian law enforcement authorities in protecting software copyright holders.
