Can registration of copyright be assigned?
I have just come up with a literary work and I need to file a copyright for the same. Is it compulsory that I do it myself or can I assign the work to anybody? Will my participation in the process be mandatorily required?
Yes, registration of copyright can be assigned. It is not compulsory that your physical presence will be required for registration at the concerned office or online for that matter. You can assign it to your agent. But note that since copyrights are important rights, it is advisable that you stay aware of the registration proceedings.
