Yes. Assignment of Copyright is exempt in most of the states.
However under Bombay Stamp Act, any instrument comprising assignment of copyright needs to be stamped @ 0.25% as per Article 5(h)(A)(v)as per the amendment made by Bombay Stamp (Amendment) Act, 2005.
Hence please check the local stamp act. Indian Stamp Act exempts the same.
