Overview of Copyright Protection Services In India
The role played by copyright protection services in India is crucial to safeguarding intellectual property rights and promoting creativity and innovation. By utilising these offerings, one can protect their literary or artistic creations from being copied without permission. The Indian legal system for copyright protection lies in a set of laws, including the Copyrights Act of 1957 alongside the Copyright Rules from 2013, and to enforce copyright laws effectively in the country, multiple organisations and agencies offer copyright protection services.
The Copyright Office in India is the principal authority that oversees copyright protection. It is a component of the Department for the Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), which is part of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. Copyright Office can register and protect creative works like books, music, films, programs, and paintings. Despite being optional, registering your copyright provides several legal benefits. Proof of ownership and the chance to take legal action in case of infringement are some of the benefits.
