if the artistic work is a painting which is what you mean and so is not capable of being used in relation to goods  then it is not necessary to file TM60 and to obtain a certificate from the Registrar of trademarks.In this case the fee for filing  for copyright protection in form 11  is  Rs 50 per work.However for your information the fee for TM 60 is Rs 5000.If you are the author of the work you need not have to take authorisation from Limca.
