Copyright, being a combination of two words, Copy and Right, simply means the right to copy one original work into duplicates. In Copyright, the original creators have the right to give their authorization to any third party to recreate their work in the instructed manner. Permission to copy the author’s right is usually granted for commercial purposes. Copyright is registered by artists to secure artistic work such as literary works written by an author, movie scripts by writers, songs by lyricists and music composer, paintings done by artist and so on. These rights are granted to the creator for lifetime and lasts for 60 years past the death of the creator. The Indian Copyright Act, 1957 governs the copyright provisions in India. As it is not mandatory for an artist to register his work, it should always be a preference as registering a work will always grant a certain set of rights to the original artist which can be further enforced in future.
