Copyright registration in India is governed by The Copyright Act, 1957. The Act protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and cinematograph films and sound recordings from unauthorized uses. Copyright is basically a legal right which has been provided to the creators of literature, dramatics, musical and artistic work and even the producer’s films and sound recordings. In fact, it is a bundle of rights including, inter alia, rights of reproduction, communication to the public, adaptation and translation of the work.
Doing a particular work takes lots of efforts and energy and therefore protecting the work done is as important as doing it. And one of the medium through which one can protect as well as enjoy certain rights over his/her works is Copyright.
Benefits of Copyright Registration:
- Legal Protection
- Branding or Goodwill
