Procedure to Obtain Copyright

As we all know that it is necessary to register the copyrights of original works or poems of the poets or authors with the Indian Copyright Office because it enhances the value of the poetries and it prevents the hard work of authors or poets from the infringers. Registration will provide a public record for the copyrights of your poems; it will even create the presumption of the ownership which will be really important and worthy. Every copyright owner whether he/she is a poet or author of any literary, artistic, musical work, should consider registering their original work to maintain the uniqueness of the content so that no offender can steal their work.
