Copyright Filing

The copyright office filing fees in India, are very reasonable, and nominal, to say the least. It is in spite of the grand fact that the Indian Copyright Act, 1957, is in close agreement and conformity with most of the globally recognized and reputed copyright regulations. However, the copyright filing fees do vary depending upon the type, nature, and purpose of the works to be copyright. These copyright filing fees in India range from mere Rs.50/- per work to Rs.600/- per creation. Again, for getting the license for republishing, the charges vary accordingly from Rs.200/- per work to Rs.600/- per work. Here, it deserves to be noted that the various categories of matters and materials that can be copyright are literary, musical, artistic, photographic, cinematographic, and sculptural works and creations. On the other hand, for other items of the intellectual property, such as trademarks and patents, the registration fees are different and more than the copyright filing fees. For registration of a simple trademark, the registration fees are about Rs.3000/-. The fees for patent registrations are more than these all.
