Copyright Registration India
According to Copyright Law in India, Copyright devolves on the owner of a work as soon as it is created, but it is considered prudent to register your copyright since it ensures better legal protection against infringers. Copyrighted work could be a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work. What is sought for is originality of the work. The terms of protection vary according to the kind of work. The total term of protection for literary work is the author’s life plus sixty years. The procedure for grant of copyright in India includes the step of filing a copyright application in the Copyright Office, responding to the objection, if raised in the examination report, and obtaining copyright registration certificate which is issued by the Copyright Office India.
