Hello Sir, I am a Music Composer & I wanna enter the Film Industry. Before I send my compositions to any directors/ producers, I wanna copyright my creation. Please let me know the following
1) How to copyright music in India?
2) What all parts of a song can be copyrighted. I mean, is the song copyrighted as a whole ( Tune + Lyrics ) or is it just the tune or Lyrics copyrighted individually?
3) Suppose someone steals my tunes( happens very frequently in the industry) & put up new lyrics to the same Tune which I have already copyrighted, will this be considered as a new song ?? Actually speaking, Tune is the most important part & Any number of lyrics can be written for just 1 tune.
Please clarify my above questions & Thanks a lot in Advance .
