Copyright Registration services

The Copyright Act, 1957, along by the Copyright Rules, 1958, is the governing law for copyright protection in India. The Copyright Act provides that a copyright subsists in an original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, cinematographic films, and sound recordings, whereas few things such as methods and procedures for mathematical operations cannot be copyrighted. With copyright registration it gives the original owner the peace of mind against the work he created or rewarded. The copyright is usually valid for lifetime of the author and 60 years after the passing of the author the work would be under his name. Copyright application protects the work from being copied with certain exemptions provided under the act.
