Copyright Registration


Upon filing an application for copyright with complete details and copies, a filing number (diary number), filing date and filing receipt is issued by the Copyright Office.

After receipt of dairy number, the author or the right owner has to wait for a mandatory period of 30 days so that no objection is filed in the Copyright office against the claim that particular work is created by the applicant. If such objection is filed it may take another one month time to decide as to whether the work could be registered by the Registrar of Copyrights after giving an opportunity of hearing the matter from both the parties.


If no objection is filed the application is then formally examined and objections, if any, are raised, or any extra documents required are requested. Response to the objections/examination report has to be filed within 30 days.


Copyright registration certificate is issued by the copyright office after the objections, if any, are overcome to the satisfaction of the Copyright Office.
