Copyright is a bundle of rights

  COPYRIGHT IS A BUNDLE OF RIGHTS 


Copyright in simple terms can be defined as the exclusive right to copy the work for which the author has the right for copyright. It is the right of a person to copy the work in which the copyright subsists. It is also the right to do or authorizing others to do certain acts in literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works, cinema films and sound recording. 

Copyright is not a single right, but a bundle of rights:

Every copyright holder, by virtue of the copyright available to him, gets a number of rights. In other words, copyright is a collection of bundles of rights.
