So first of all what is a copyright?
A copyright is essentially a right not to copy someone’s work. A copyright gives the owner of the subject an exclusive right over his work. If a work is protected by copyright, no one can imitate, copy or reproduce the original work in any other way. A term of copyright in India is 60 years. Copyright can be taken for the following works:

The register of the Registrar of Copyrights is divided into 6 categories:
PART – 1: Literary works other than computer Programs
PART – 2: Musical Works
PART – 3: Artistic Works
