It has come to the notice of the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce & Industry that a website www.copyright.in is creating a false impression that it is the official website of the copyright registration office in India and inviting applications for protection of the various works i.e. literary, artistic, dramatic, musical, sound recording and cinematographic films along with its evidences. This claim is totally fraudulent and creating confusion among general public.
DIPP and Copyright Office have no relation with this website. Hence, all concerned are advised that they should not make any payment or submit application forms on-line or otherwise take any service relating to copyright registration or any other activity relating to copyright through this website. DIPP or Copyright Office will not be responsible for any damages or loss in this regard.
The authorised and authentic copyright office website is www.copyright.gov.in. For any copyright registration and other related issues on copyright, only this official website should be used. The matter has already been referred to the concerned Ministries to block the fake website i.e. www.copyright.in and initiate legal action.
