The statement consists of three components in it, which are sweat of the brow doctrine, labour law theory and basic principles of copyrights. This article provides the background of the sweat of the brow doctrine (here onwards, the SOB doctrine) and John Locke Labour theory which results in flouting the basic principles of copyrights.
