Copy Right Act_2

Is it compulsory to have registration for copyright protection?

No, it is not compulsory to register Copyright. Berne Convention grants “inherent protection” which means the holder does not have to comply with any formalities for the purposes of copyright protection. But we recommend you to obtain registration because registration is a prima facie proof of ownership and it might be easier to persuade judicial and administrative authorities to grant you interim relief even without notice to the infringers.
