The following is the process for copyright registration :

  • Filing an application for copyright over a piece of work by the claimant either by applying it offline in the copyright registrar office or through the online database.
  • The copyright application fee is different for different categories of work. For example, the fee for cinematography might be different from a piece of literature.
  •  Then 30 days of the examination period is given to the registrar so that any objections can be entertained, and the application is reviewed properly.
  • If any objection comes out both the parties are informed and the submitted work is reviewed and investigated.
  • Based on the investigation by the registrar the application is either accepted or rejected.
  • Accepted applications are then registered under the Copyright act and a certificate of copyright is issued.
