Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, photograph, Painting, a speach, movies, songs, source code of a software program, the binary executable file, Website, Mobile App, and architecture.

It registration with IPR Authority essentially ensures that any creative work cannot be copied without the permission of the author or creator. This allows the author to charge others for copying his work, or modifying it, or building on top of it. For example, downloading an image from Shutterstock and using it on your own website without purchasing or taking on rent is violating the copyright of Shutterstock. Shutterstock can file a suit against you to claim its value of the image.

The Copyright Act, 1957 protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and cinematograph films and sound recordings from unauthorised uses. Unlike the case with patents, copyright protects the expressions and not the ideas.

There is no copyright protection for ideas, procedures, methods of operation or mathematical concepts as such

Copyright does not ordinarily protect titles by themselves or names, short word combinations, slogans, short phrases, methods, plots or factual information. Copyright does not protect ideas or concepts. To get the protection of copyright a work must be original.

No. Acquisition of copyright is automatic and it does not require any formality. Copyright comes into existence as soon as a work is created and no formality is required to be completed for acquiring copyright. However, certificate of registration of copyright and the entries made therein serve as prima facie evidence in a court of law with reference to dispute relating to ownership of copyright.
