The reason for doing a copyright registration is to register a confirm able account of the date and content of the author’s work, so that in the event of a legal claim or plagiarism, the copyright owner can present a copy of their work from an official government source. Using an original work for commercial purpose by anyone other than the author can create a huge loss for the author. Therefore, copyright registration will automatically protect the creator.
Copyright registration will give the author’s creative work a legal status, i.e. an exclusive legal right over the creation, making it an Intellectual Property. It is a frequent mistake to confuse copyright registration with the granting of copyright.Copyright fundamentally forms a decree which makes it obvious that no person shall be entitled to any rights in any work, whether published or unpublished, in accordance with the provisions of the Copyright Act.
