I have written a novel and I want to publish it on Amazon KDP. However, I am facing a difficulty regarding the copyright page. Any assistance would be highly appreciated. I am based out of India and I have the following questions:
According to Indian copyright Law, do I have to register a copyright or do I own the copyright of my novel as I am the creator (which is the case in US copyright law)
If I use a pen name while publishing my novel, can I write the same at the beginning of my book in the format indicated below or would I have to use my legal name?
Format: Copyright © 2022 Pen Name All rights reserved.
- If I do not register the copyright, can I include the above format in the beginning of my book, as the book is my intellectual property and I own it.
Any Help would be highly appreciated!
