Copyright is a tool made available by the Indian Government to safeguard and promote the works of intellectual origin. Not only this, it also guarantees adequate monetary returns from their work. One reasonable factor of limitation on registration of copyright is that the law protects the material expression of an idea and not the idea in itself. If any litigation arises, the registration establishes the validity and authenticity of the owner’s work and further enables him to claim damages and payment of attorney fees.
