Copyright protects works of authorship such as literary, dramatic, artistic, musical, and photographic works. It grants exclusive rights to authors for a period of life plus sixty (60) years, and sixty (60) years for some other works. Though copyright registration is not a per-requisite for protection, and copyright protection begins on creation of a work, registration brings several advantages from easy enforceability to enhanced financial value.

BananaIP offers services to help authors, novelists and publishers in India, the USA and other countries register copyrights in their books, novels, photographs, and publications. Our team of highly qualified attorneys also help authors and publishers draft, negotiate and manage publication agreements and copyright licenses. As several of the attorneys and agents working with BananaIP are authors themselves, they understand an author’s or novelist’s needs better than other attorneys.

In addition to protecting their work of authorship, authors, novelists and publishers also need to protect their brand, image, persona, and more. BananaIP offers specialized services to protect these. BananaIP’s team of IP attorneys work very closely with clients to register and protect their trademarks, celebrity, and related rights. We also help authors, novelists, and publishers draft, negotiate and manage endorsement agreements, publicity rights contracts, merchandising agreements, and trademark franchise agreements.

In addition to protection and management services, BananaIP also advises authors, novelists and publishers on IP risk clearance, physical and digital distribution, royalty management, and advertising and promotion instruments. Several authors and publishers in India, the USA and other countries work closely with BananaIP to protect, manage and commercialize their works and enhance financial value of their content.
