Copyright Registration


Copyright, as the word suggests, confers a legal right to the creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works as well as to the producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. The concept of copyright was initiated to ensure the protection of a creative person’s intellectual works and to encourage innovativeness by lifting its uniqueness and guard the work against being reproduced by unauthorized beings.

Copyright is guaranteed with a legal recognition under the Copyrights Act 1957. The right authorizes a person to reproduce, translate, bequeath or sell the work for consideration. But the ideas, methods or procedures cannot be copyrighted. The registration of Copyright is done at the Copyright Office, under the control of Registrar of Copyrights who shall act under the guidance of Central Government. The term of Copyright differs in respect to the kind of work copyrighted which is dealt with under Chapter V of the Copyrights Act 1957.
