COPYRIGHT

COPYRIGHT INR - 6,000.00

Copyright is for original works of literature, drama, music, art or intellectual property. Once an original piece is finished, it automatically receives copyright protection. Copyrights can be designated by attaching the symbol ©, the full word “copyright,” or the abbreviation “Copr.” Available to published and unpublished works, a copyright gives the owner the exclusive right to reproduce the work, prepare derivative works, distribute copies and perform/display the work publicly.” Copyrights do not cover titles, names, phrases or slogans, symbols, designs, ideas, procedures, methods, concepts or discoveries. A copyright’s protection generally lasts for the life of the author(s) plus 60 years.

Copyrights protect original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyrights do not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation.
 

A Copyright protects original works of authorship, while a patent protects inventions or discoveries. Ideas and discoveries are not protected by copyright law, although the way in which they are expressed may be. A trademark protects words, phrases, symbols, or designs identifying the source of the goods or services of one party and distinguishing them from those of others.
 

Yes and No. A mere listing of ingredients is not protected under copyright law. However, where a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a collection of recipes as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection. Note that if you have secret ingredients to a recipe that you do not wish to be revealed, you should not submit your recipe for registration, because applications and deposit copies are public records.

No. Names are not protected by copyright law. They are, however, able to be registered as Trademarks.

Of note, copyrights can protect recordings of songs and music by a band as well as music and written lyrics.

Yes. Minors may claim rights in a copyright, and the Copyright Office issues registrations to minors, but state laws may regulate the business dealings involving copyrights owned by minors.

The term of copyright for a particular work depends on several factors, including whether it has been published, and, if so, the date of first publication. As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978, copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus an additional 70 years. For an anonymous work, a pseudonymous work, or a work made for hire, the copyright endures for a term of 95 years from the year of its first publication or a term of 120 years from the year of its creation, whichever expires first. For works first published prior to 1978, the term will vary depending on several factors.
