The Rajya Sabha has just started to debate the Copyright (Amendment) Bill, 2010. Apparently the sitting of the House has been extended today by one hour till 7:30. Javed Akhtar initiated the debate with a passionate appeal to pass the Bill. Do turn on Rajya Sabha TV if you are interested in catching the debate right now. You can also view the debate on the RS website. We’ll link up to the debates once they are put up on the website.
