Can public notary grant us copyright??

Well I am interested in launching a book and for that I was browsing the internet. What I know till now is that for copyright registration, we have to file application offline at Copyright office. So, i found a website that is claiming that they can register copyright online by public notary...

Are public notaries authorized to register a copyright..?? pls guide.

No public notary are not authorized to do copy right . There is a due  process which has to be followed for copyright..



Ankit Singh (N/A)     10 November 2012 = This is the website which is offering a copyright for Rs.326/- which is granted by public notary and they say is valid for a lifetime

Public Notory has no power to grant copy right. Kindly read Chapter 10 of the Copy right Act 1957 along with Chapter 6 of the Copy right Rules 1958.

I dont know about this web

Kindly contact any IP lawyer near by you.
