Copyright provides the creators of original works of authorship with a set of exclusive rights to copy distribute and perform their works for a limited period of time. Protected works include books, plays, movies, music, photographs, sculptures, paintings, digital files and web pages which are valuable creations and are worth protecting so that these cannot be duplicated by anybody else or mishandled. Copyright registration Gujarat is a fairly long process where a number of formalities are to be fulfilled in order to obtain a Certificate of Copyright. Copyright services in Gujarat can be executed with a help of any of the large number of consultants who assist in doing these works. Copyright registration online in Gujarat is possible and more and more applicants are obtained this method to save time and energy and get the work done.
The first step in the process of obtaining a Copyright Certificate for any creative work according to the norms of copyright registration Gujarat is filing an application for the same in association with any legal consultant who is engaged in the Copyright registration services.
Once the application form is rightly filed and submitted to the office of the Registrar for the approval, a Diary number is generated in 2-3 weeks. This Diary number is to be kept by the applicant for future reference. Whenever there would be any interaction with the Copyright Registrar office, the Diary number is required all the times. Thus, it is very crucial to handle it with extreme care.
Then it takes a fair six weeks time for the Registrar office to conduct a substantive examination of the application submitted by the claimant of the Copyright for his/her work. It is examined whether the creation is genuine and all facts and figures are in right place. If there are any objections found, they are intimidated to the applicant after the sixth week of application. On non-compliance of objection or objections, the application is abandoned. A period of 30 days is given to the applicant to comply with the objection and make corrections in it. After the corrections are done, the case is re-examined. This is the last chance to correct all the objections as no other chance is given to the applicant after this. After the re-examination, it is either accepted or rejected.
On acceptance, a Copyright certificate is awarded to the applicant. Once the applicant gets a Copyright Certificate for his creation, he/she can pursue an infringement action against someone who used his or her work without authorization.
Though there are a number of consultants in different cities of Gujarat who can assist you in obtaining a Copyright certificate, the formalities are carried out in the Copyright registrar Office in Parliament Street, New Delhi.
