Question

PRINCIPLE: An agreement may be oral or written. However, if a law specifically requires that an agreement must be in writing then the agreement must be in writing. A law specifically requires that the agreements relating to transfer of the copyright in novel between an author of a novel and the producer of a motion picture must be in writing.

FACTS: The author of a novel, Love at Lost Sight, had several rounds of discussion with a producer of motion picture regarding making of a motion picture based on Love at Lost Sight. During the last discussion, they decided to make a motion picture on Love at Lost Sight. The producer made a motion picture on Love at Lost Sight after making a payment of Rs. 10, 00, 000/- (Ten Lac Only) in cash to the author who happily accepted this amount as full and final payment. Later on, on the advice of his lawyer, the author brought a case in a court of law against the producer on the ground that there is no written agreement between the producer and him.

Choices

Choice (4) Response

b.

The author is likely to succeed in the case as the agreement is not in accordance with the law

c.

The author can succeed in the case as the consideration is not adequate

d.

The author is not likely to succeed in the case because he has already accepted the amount of Rs. 10, 00, 000/- as full and final payment
