Registration of manuscripts from ancestors



I  am in possession of certain important heritage images given to me by my Aunt. I am also having the Manuscriptts of my Aunt describing the darshans from these heritage images and also spiritual and personal experiences in day to day life.

Myself and my sister have made a foundation(Section 8 Company)  and in the objectives the diaries have been mentioned. One of the purpose of the foundation is to construct a temple for Lord Krishna as mentioned in the diaries of my Aunt.

Hence now a time has come that these beautiful idols and diaries have to be transferred to the foundation.

What is the procedure?

1) should I gift the above-mentioned spiritual assets to the foundation


2)Should I register them  or

3)Is there any other way

Do you means to registration under Copyright Act. If so please understand that copyright automatically happens when anyone publish any work, but in your case it not published one and someone may misutilise your aunt's manuscriptts. better to protect he rights, consult any copyright agents, who should help. in general any literary work carry the copyright up 70 years from the death of the author or from the date of publication.
