COPYRIGHT REGISTRATION

5 Simple Steps


 

About

Copyright is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematographic 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.

Copyright ensures certain minimum safeguards of the rights of authors over their creations, thereby protecting and rewarding creativity. Creativity being the keystone of progress, no civilized society can afford to ignore the basic requirement of encouraging the same. Economic and social development of a society is dependent on creativity. The protection provided by copyright to the efforts of writers, artists, designers, dramatists, musicians, architects and producers of sound recordings, cinematographic films and computer software, creates an atmosphere conducive to creativity, which induces them to create more and motivates others to create.

Fundamentally, copyright is a private right and depends on an individual in which way he/she wants to implement or use the copyright. It is flexible in nature and is not mandatory to be utilized in the work and can also be assigned to others by the owners.

It permits the right to sue an infringer in federal court, in case the owner holds a copyright registration. The copyright owner has the right to oppose any offender who claims the ownership of that particular work.
