• Copyright for a CD

I have shooted for CD for an NGO. We want to get its copyright and earn something for NGO. How do we proceed.
Asked 3 years ago in Business Law from Silvassa, Dadra and Nagar Haveli
If the contents of CD have an artistic value then you may apply for copyright after it is put in a mode of transmission in public domain.

Yes. Cinematograph films  - also  title of motion films including its screenplay is registerable under copyright Act. The same must be registered with the Copyright Board in New Delhi. Pertinent to note that registration is not mandatory but advisable due to its benefits. For details on Procedure for registration, please visit www.copyright.gov.in/
