Relocation of copyright office to DIPP


The Copyright Office recently announced the relocation of their office to Boudhik Sampada Bhawan, which is home to the Indian Patent, Trademarks and G.I. offices. It appears that the Copyright office has completed the physical and logical transfer to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

The Copyright Office until recently was under the jurisdiction of the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry. However, the IPR policy released in May 2016 announced that the administration of the Copyright office was to be brought under the aegis of the (DIPP).

The DIPP was previously responsible for Intellectual Property Rights relating to Patents, Designs, Trade Marks and Geographical Indication. Hence, it seemed logical to consolidate the administration of all IP-related offices under a single administrative entity for uniformity in decision-making and administration. However, the real effects of this transfer on the Indian IP scene remain to be seen.
