Fraudulent Websites Sell Copyright Registrations Worldwide

Fraudulent Websites Sell Copyright Registrations Worldwide

A network of misleading websites has been charging Internet users to pay for copyright registrations in the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries, although it's a free and automatic right almost everywhere. Indian authorities even take legal action to stop the "fraudulent" operation. Creators are usually able to claim copyright on their works without having to register anything, as there are no official copyright registration offices in most countries (the United States is an exception, because registrations are a requirement for court cases). The procedure is the same for India – registration is in fact voluntary, but official registration with the authorities is able to help solve legal disputes. However, the authorities were quite surprised to learn that the website copyright.in offers unofficial copyright registrations to Indians, charging them about $10 per a copyright registration.

Of course, the Indian government didn’t like the very fact of existence of the service. It has issued a press statement describing the website as fraudulent, because people can confuse it with the official copyright office. The government has already taken legal action and hopes to get the website blocked.

In the meantime, this misleading site is just one of many – the same service is also connected to similar websites offering registrations in other countries. For example, similar sites operate in Australia, Italy and the Netherlands. There are two separate domains in the United Kingdom as well, although copyright is a free and automatic right in the UK.

The governments explain that such fraudulent sites have nothing to do with the copyright and caution rights holders to think before paying any money. However, the lawyers clarify that such websites are not necessarily breaking the law. The matter is that it is absolutely not required to register copyright in the United Kingdom, but there is also no law to forbid private companies from keeping a copyright register for a fee. The problem is that the network of the websites conveniently fails to mention their voluntary nature and therefore misleads many creators who are not well aware of their rights and obligations.
