Overview of Copyright Registration

What is copyright?

Copyrights are a bundle of legal rights that protect the creative expression of an idea. Copyright is automatic once the original work is created and it does not require any formality. The term copyright refers to the “right to copy” which is available only to the author or the creator, as the case may be. Copyright is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. Under the Copyright Act, the author not only get the right to the authorship but also gets the right under which without his prior permission his work cannot be amended. The protection provided by copyright to the efforts of writers, artists, designers, dramatists, musicians, architects and producers of sound recordings, cinematograph films and computer software, which induces them to create more and motivates others to create. In fact, it is a bundle of rights including, inter alia, rights of reproduction, communication to the public, adaptation and translation of the work. There could be slight variations in the composition of the rights depending on the work. Copyright ensures certain minimum safeguards of the rights of authors over their creations, thereby protecting and rewarding creativity.
