WHAT IS COPYRIGHT REGISTRATION IN INDIA?

A copyright is an intellectual property that is governed in India by the Copyrights Act, 1957. Copyright is an intellectual right that is given to the creators of literary, music, books, films, artistic work, etc. against their inventions such as books, music, software, etc. from being copied and misused. Copyright registration provides security, right to sue in case of misuse, the legal right of ownership, and also helps to build up goodwill for business expansion.

It is not mandatory to register a copyright, but not doing so will devoid the creator of any benefits and legal recourse provided by the law. The copyright registration process is not complicated and can be completed with a few easy steps. Application for registration of copyright can be made online as well.

FEATURES

Prevent Copy

The copyright registration in India protects the creation from being copied or misused by unauthorized individuals or entity & ensures certain minimum safeguards of the rights of authors over their creations.

Filing of suit

With a copyright registration in India, the owner gets the right to file a suit in case of infringement of the right. It acts as a deterrent against unauthorized reproduction of the copyrighted work.

Creation of Asset

A copyright is an intellectual property and is an intangible asset as well. The copyrights can be sold, franchised, or commercially contracted by the creator. Thus, a copyright registration creates an intangible asset, just like trademarks and patents.
