Copyright is a legal right granted by the state to owner of the creative work e.g. literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works, cinematograph films and sound recordings. Copyright registration is not mandatory and it acquired automatic with the creation. However, a registration certificate facilitates the process of enforcement by serving prima facie evidence in a court. In India, trademarks are governed by The Copyright Act, 1957 and The Copyright Rules, 2013.
FILING AND PROSECUTION
We represent our client in filing and prosecution of copyright applications to get their creations registered in most efficient manner.
A registered copyright confers the commercial and moral rights to the owner of the copyright. However, it is proprietor’s burden to keep an eye on unfair trade practices which includes selling pirated copies for commercial purposes and unethical adaptation of copyrighted work without obtaining the consent of the owner of the copyright. We ensure effective enforcement of copyrights of our client through suitable pre-litigation measures. We also ensure effective enforcement through obtaining favorable injunctions orders where the pre-litigation measures would not suffice.
We have a team of dynamic lawyers having comprehensive experience in copyright law to represent our clients before all level of courts (District Courts, High Courts and the Supreme Court) and various tribunals for safeguarding the interest of our clients.
