Dear Aniket Giri

Please note once once the book is publised itself, he owns a copyright. You need not register for a copyright to subsist in a work, unlike a trade mark and patent. But to support themselves from any infrigment, people still register for copyright because late while fighting infrigment suit, they can claim damages.

Ms.Rema, pl go through the relevant provisions of the Copyright Act and Rules for the required information. Let's not discuss all the procedures here, since our profession needs earning to support our families - in this high cost world. This forum is meant for public to ask questions on legal affairs and not between lawyers inter se.

Respected Advocate Mr. Gurunarayana Rao,

       Iam sorry if your comment is correct.  I feel that there is no harm in discussing the formalities in this forum, if majority of the members are intended to discuss the same here.  Or as a club or association of professionals, what is the use of all these.  Now this is a period of  popular RTA Act.  If anybody wants the relevent informations can be have from the Concerned department.  So If some others are also supporting you, I agree.  Othewise, we can take your comment as your comment.  Sorry  if Iam wrong.

 

Regards,

Rema
