Is street art, such as murals in public spaces, entitled to copyright protection? The Delhi High Court has decided to examine the issue.

In February this year, insurance company Acko General Insurance published a hoarding as part of its advertising campaign, using a photograph of a mural titled ‘Humanity’ painted on a public building in Mumbai. The company also promoted the campaign on its social media handles.
