What is Copyright Registration ?

How we serve you the best

A trademark is any unique expression related to a product or service that distinguishes it from others. A trademark can be a visual symbol, which may be a word, a name, a device, label or numerals used by a business to distinguish it from other goods of different business.

It is your silent salesman, your legal umbrella, your asset to flaunt. Owners of trademarks have exclusive rights to use trademark under the categories they are registered in (there is a total of 45 categories, called classes). Only Trademarks that are registered under the Trademark Act, 1999 provides the trademark owner right to sue for damages when infringements of trademarks occur.

These Products Are Not Eligible For Protection

Under The Indian Designs Act. 2000

You may want to use or incorporate someone else's work into your own. While the works of others may be protected by copyright, there are a class of works that fall outside the scope of copyright law. The following categories of work are not eligible for copyright protection, regardless of when they were created and whether or not they bear a copyright notice.

Advantages Of Copyright Registration

How we serve you the best

Legal evidence

This is the biggest and most significant benefit of getting a copyright registration done. With a copyright in place, your work is legally denoted to be yours. This keeps it safe. And if anyone infringes or tries to replicate your design, idea or product, you can cite the registered copyright in a legal argument. This will automatically and swiftly tip the scales in your favour. Without a copyright, you may find it difficult to contest such an issue. However, with a copyright registered beforehand, such issues can be sorted easily.

Public notice

Next, we have another significant advantage of copyright registration. When you copyright your work, it is documented in your name. Not only does this protect your work, it also gives you the ownership and spreads your name more freely in the public domain. This gives you a face and credibility to your design or idea. It also prevents others from taking ownership and wrongfully claiming they invented or manufactured that particular body of work. No one can claim to have not known about your ownership and used the work as their own. This can go a long way in protecting your reputation in your field of work, which in turn can translate into monetary as well as honorary profits.

Seeking damages

Not only is plagiarism a threat to the economic health of your business, it is also a treat to your status and standing. So, if due to any unfortunate event you do end up in a copyright infringement tangle, you can seek damages from the perpetrators. However, this can only happen if the copyright is correctly registered in your name. Without that, you won’t have a base to build your case upon. So, take stock of any future mishap that may happen and register your copyright without any further delay.

Early registration

You may have a few years in your hand to register the copyright, but it makes sense for you to take advantage of an early registration. This is important because if you procrastinate, someone else may swoop in and register something similar in their name. And then you will have no right over your original design, idea or product, even though you are the rightful owner of it. It is very simple to carry out a copyright registration in your name. The process can be completed online in a short span of time. So, do not wait for an eventuality to strike, because then it may be too late to go back and restore the prospects of your organisation.

Helps you stand out in the crowd

At every step of life, there is tremendous competition. You may find yourself lost in a crowd of competitors when you start a business of your own. However, a copyright registration may come in handy at such a time. By copyrighting even a small item, you will make it inaccessible to your competitors. This will make you stand out in the crowd and give an instant push to your profits. Do not forget this very useful advantage of copyright registration when you start your own business.

Getting your copyright registered is an absolutely essential thing to do. This small task of copyright registration opens up a whole lot of advantages to you. From keeping your ideas safe to bringing in more economic profits, you can indeed get a lot out of it. If you have still not gotten your copyrights registered, do so right away!

Frequently Asked Questions

Trademark Registration

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. Sometimes even businesses and startups get copyright registration related to instruction manuals, product literature and user guides. Usually, copyright is possessed by a creator of the work, but sometimes even the employer of its creator or the person who has authorised the work can own the copyright.

All works published in the United States before 1923 are in the public domain. Works published after 1922, but before 1978 are protected for 95 years from the date of publication. If the work was created, but not published, before 1978, the copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years.

Copyright protection exists from the moment the work is created (fixed in a tangible medium). However, registration provides important benefits, such as proof of ownership. In addition, copyright owners who have registered their copyright have additional remedies if their copyright is infringed.

Since copyright protection is automatic from the moment a work is created, registration is not required in order to protect your work. You must file an application for registration before you can sue someone for infringing your copyright, even if the infringement has already occurred.
