I am from India and I have made some computer information based videos. I am going to sell them soon. Well, my problem is I have put a copyright notice while making the production of the videos.

Like a label at the footer of the entire video. Here's an example:

© 2016 Produced By MY NAME, All Rights Reserved

Well, once I complete the video, I am going to to submit it for copyright.

Is that OK to put copyright notice before submitting for copyright or will there be an issue?


Under most countries' copyright laws, the copyright exists as soon as a work is created. The copyright generally becomes enforceable upon registration of the copyright. Most works that are marked "© 2016" have not actually had their copyright registered at the time the copyright mark is embedded in the work.

  • In most jurisdictions copyrights are also enforceable without registration. The registration just makes it simpler. – Philipp Jan 25 '16 at 11:49
  • So is this ok to put copyright caption on it ? Is there any issue while submitting the video with that caption ? – bnil Jan 30 '16 at 6:24
