Copyright Registration

Copyright registration is the process of legally registering a creative work with the government to establish ownership and protection of the work’s intellectual property rights. Copyright registration provides evidence of the copyright owner’s exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, display, and perform their work. It also serves as a deterrent against infringement and provides the copyright owner with legal remedies in case of unauthorized use. Copyright registration typically involves submitting an application, fee, and a copy of the work being registered to the appropriate government agency, such as the United States Copyright Office.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
