With effect from August 01, 2014, the physical Copyright Counter for filing copyright applications has been closed, in a move to promote the online filing of copyright applications, a system which has been in place since February 17, 2014. Thus, all copyright applications are now to be filed online by visiting the website of the Copyright Office at www.copyright.gov.in, or as an alternative, to be sent by Speed Post/Registered Post in the format prescribed. Before sending the applications through Speed Post/ Registered Post, the mobile number or email address for communications has to be written on the Form XIV, as the diary number of applications will be provided through mobile number/ email address.
The advantage of online registration through “E-filing facility” is that applications can now be filed at a time and place chosen by the applicants, thereby saving time and money. This new step taken by the Copyright Office promises to expedite the process of grant of registration of copyright in India.
