Abstract

This research analyses the effectiveness of the copyright law and system in the modern day piracy. The work is built on the hypothesis that the current copyright law is inefficient to tackle the modern day’s piracy. This is because of the various shortfalls noted in the act. The shortfalls are noted by looking at the Copyright and Neighbouring Right Act. The analyses are also done by looking at the other jurisdictions laws especially the US and UK laws on copyright. The shortfalls are noted apart for the fact that Tanzania is a member of various regional and multilateral frameworks on copyright. It is also found that there are no serious efforts to use the support from these various for a meaningful copyright protection in the modern era for the benfits of Tanzanian artists.
