Copyright of songs, lyrics & music videos


Hello,

I have some questions:

1) how to copyright lyrics?
2) how to copyright lyrics with tune, but not a complete song?
3) how to copyright a complete song with music?
4) how to copyright a music video?
5) how much each of the above options would cost me individually?
6) what is the copyright procedure for each of the above options and how long does it take?

7) is the copyright done in India applicable/enforceable internationally? if no, how can we get an international copyright?

Kindly revert ASAP.

Regards, 
Krupali

I'm against music copyrighting. I believe this should disappear at all.
