India subscribes to the Berne Convention, like just about every other country, which states that no formalities are required. They may be helpful in proving your case if you ever wish to bring suit for copyright infringement, however, and in the U.S. at least unregistered works can only collect actual damages. -- I suggest you call for help, John Cowan or learn the difficult art of mud-breathing. --Great-Souled Sam
