Is it mandatory to record a transfer of ownership of a design on account of assignment deed / mortgage / license at the Design Office?
It is mandatory to record any partial/ complete transfer in ownership of a design at the Design Office.
If said transfer is not recorded at the Design Office, the Design Office or the Court may not admit the same to be a proof of title to copyright at a later stage.
Towards this, an application for registration of title shall be filed within six months from the date of execution of the assignment deed/ mortgage/ license. This period is extendable by a maximum of six months.
